Departmental Resources: Careers

UROP Postings

The Department routinely receives notices of UROP opportunities and lists them here as a service to members of the MIT community. The positions have not been screened, nor verified to be available. Nor are they endorsed by the Department.

For more information, visit MIT's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).

The deadline to apply is February 2, 2015.

The Amgen-UROP Scholars Program invites undergraduates to participate in faculty-mentored summer research at MIT in the life science and bioengineering/biotechnology areas. Students admitted to this program (known as “Amgen Scholars”) will have opportunities to conduct research and present research, attend lectures and workshops, network with other undergraduates with similar research interests, and develop working relationships with MIT faculty mentors and other research staff.

Amgen Scholars learn how to collaborate effectively in research settings, investigate areas of research interest, and gain practical skills and knowledge for both graduate study and post-graduation careers. Participants become fully integrated in MIT’s summer research community, interact with faculty mentors and fellow undergraduates, and participate in research seminars and other networking events. Most importantly, Amgen Scholars become involved in exciting research and contribute to the advancement of science in an area of interest.

The Program also offers a competitive compensation package. Amgen Scholars working 40 hours per week for the nine-week period will earn $4,320, based on an hourly wage of $12. Housing in a designated MIT residence hall and an $800 food allowance will also be provided.
