The Office of Research at the UIC College of Dentistry invites applications for the 2023 Summer Research Fellowship Program.
The UIC College of Dentistry Office of Research invites applications for the 2023 Summer Research Fellowship Program. The College-sponsored Summer Research Fellowship is available for incoming first-year DMD students (entering in fall 2023) and undergraduate students who are interested in Oral Health Research. The students offered a Summer Research Fellowship will select a mentor and conduct supervised research during an 8-week period before the start of the academic year. Projects may fall within a range of thematic areas that are relevant to the future of oral health care, including craniofacial pathobiology, regenerative sciences, and clinical, translational and community health sciences. Students selected for a Summer Research Fellowship will receive a stipend.
The Summer Research Fellowship Program is 8 weeks long and is anticipated to begin on June 5, 2023. Admitted students will be required to complete research projects developed specifically for their Summer Research Fellowship. The program involves full-time commitment to the research laboratory, participation in weekly seminars, and attendance at special topics seminars. The results of the research must be summarized and presented. Students in the Program will present their research projects at the College’s annual Clinic and Research Day in spring 2024, and will have the opportunity to submit a research abstract for the American Association for Dental, Oral and Craniofacial Research (AADOCR) meeting. Students whose abstracts are accepted for presentation will receive additional partial support to present their findings at the annual AADOCR meeting.
We encourage students with past research experience and those with new interest in pursuing research to apply to one of our dental faculty research laboratories. The Summer Research Fellowship experience introduces students to the excitement and challenges of conducting formal research, fosters individual growth, and introduces students to the interesting world of academic dentistry and dental education.
The application process requires submission of an application form, a letter of intent describing the applicant’s research interests and career goals, and a letter of recommendation from science/academic/research mentor. Applications must be sent by e-mail to Ms. Amsa Ramachandran at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 5, 2023.
