The Tulane National Primate Research Center offers a nine-week Summer Research Program to a limited number of undergraduate students interested in biomedical research. The program introduces students to the principles and practice of scientific research with the goal of stimulating students to pursue careers in research.
After successful candidates are paired by a selection committee with a TNPRC faculty mentor, they will be expected to complete a short research project and present the findings to the Primate Center’s faculty and staff. Students assigned to laboratory-based projects do not have contact with nonhuman primates.
Program openings are available in the following divisions of the TNPRC:
Applicants may state division preference, but will not be able to pre-select. The program's selection committee assigns students to mentors.
NOTE: Attendance is required for the 9-week duration, only apply if you can make this commitment. If uncertainty around COVID-19 continues into 2022, we will reassess and inform applicants before the program start date of June 3rd.
Successful candidates will receive $12.50 per hour (based on 37.5 hour work week) for the duration of the program
