  • Cancer Research Program at St. Jude Children's Hospital for Summer 2015, Rolling Applications until Feb. 1

    The program offers a unique opportunity for students preparing for careers in the biomedical sciences, medicine, and pharmacy to gain biomedical and oncology research experience. Students participate in basic or clinical oncology research, research and clinical conferences, and a core lecture series designed specifically for them. All participants make a PowerPoint presentation on their research project and submit a report on their research project written in the style of a journal in which their faculty mentor publishes.  

    A primary goal of the POE program is to encourage students to pursue a career in cancer research. Thus, we are particularly interested in highly qualified students with a serious career interest in cancer research, either as a clinical scientist or laboratory-based research scientist.

     

    Prior research experience is required for all applicants.
     The POE 2014 class average undergraduate GPA was 3.80. In 2014, 51 students from 39 schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia were selected from 500 applicants. POEs must be United States citizens, non-citizen nationals, or possess a visa permitting permanent residence in the United States (required by the funding agency). All must have completed at least their college sophomore year by the time they participate. The minimum  requirement is 11 weeks during Summer 2015.  All POE applicants must have an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.40 (on a 4.0 scale) in math and science (biology,  chemistry, and physics) and at least a 3.40 overall. The remuneration is $4,000. Fully furnished group housing adjacent to our campus is provided at no cost for non- local participants.
     
    The POE home page <http://www.stjude.org/poe> contains links to the program application. The deadline for receipt of all 2015 application materials is February 1, 2015. Early application is highly recommended, since we make some early placements.  Letters of recommendation sent as PDF attachments to email are requested. Members of under-represented ethnic minority groups and women are particularly encouraged to apply, since one of our major long-term program goals is to increase the diversity of persons engaged in oncology research and practice. Our NIH/NCI-funded (2 P30CA021765-34S1) Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) grant provides remuneration for additional undergraduate under-represented minority POE Program participants.

  • National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates

    NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.

    By using the web page, Search for an REU Site, you may examine opportunities in the subject areas supported by various NSF units. Also, you may search by keywords to identify sites in particular research areas or with certain features, such as a particular location.

    Students must contact the individual sites for information and application materials. NSF does not have application materials and does not select student participants. A contact person and contact information is listed for each site.

  • Cook County Public Defender’s Office Internships Available for Spring 2015

    The Cook County Public Defender’s Office is recruiting interns for the Spring semester.  Ideally, and for the sake of continuity, they would like interns who would be able to commit to two semesters.

    Below, in brief, highlights both the skillset required of the interns and a general overview of duties.

    The specific work is "sentencing mitigation."  In short, the attorneys and interns make the effort to convince judges and/or the State to sentence clients to non-prison terms (specifically, probation–which is rare), or to prison terms which are close to the statutory minimum. 

    This is done via "telling the client's story," usually in the form of a written report.   Obviously, this entails getting to know that client, members of her/his support system, and the issues that beset the client.  Accordingly, they require interns with sound interviewing and people skills, a willingness to visit the clients' supporters in neighborhoods from where their clients hail, and it is imperative that the interns are able to write reasonably well.  The vast majority of their clients are confined at the Cook County Jail.  Thus, the interns must be willing to meet with those clients, one-on-one.  

    The interns they have selected in the past have had previous direct experience with their type of client base which is made up of a large percentage of indigent individuals. 

    The work of "doing mitigation" is not for everyone.  It can be emotionally-taxing and unsettling. “Mitigation” often involves working with clients who have been convicted of crimes that may be at odds with your own moral compass.  Interns interested in these positions would have to be willing to put their own personal concerns aside to work with assigned clients. 

    Interested students are encouraged to contact Alvin Hill, Public Defender, Cook County Public Defender’s Office via email at alvin.hill@cookcountyil.gov
