Tell your students: Apply for undergrad research program in food safety research by March 1.

The UW Food Research Institute has announced it’s Summer Undergraduate Research Program in Food Safety Research. This is an opportunity for undergrads to explore a career in food microbiology.  Applications are due March 1.

Each student works full time in the research laboratory of a mentor on a project related to food safety. Students are expected to work full time (40 hour week) on their project. Students with significant conflicts such as summer classes, extended trips, applications for Hilldale or other summer programs should state these on their application. Students who will graduate before Dec. 2013 will not be considered.

Participants earn $4,000 for the summer.
