Summer 2013 Students Told Us...
"The day I arrived, my mentor motivated and pushed me to learn more and do more for the research project."
"I really feel that I now know what working full-time in a lab feels like, and the fact that I enjoyed it cemented my decision to pursue a career in research."
"Wouldn't have traded this summer experience for anything else!"
"I liked getting to go to seminars with faculty in various areas of research."
"I got to do research, meet some good people, and go to the Bronx Zoo!"
Each summer the Einstein Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) brings together 50 college students each summer for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to conduct original research in a laboratory at one of the world's top-ranking scientific institutions. The program is designed for undergraduates with a strong background in science who are considering a research career.
SURP students arrive at Einstein in mid-June for a nine-week research laboratory work experience. Students are matched to a laboratory in the area of interest they indicate on their application. At the end of the program, students present their research in a poster session.
Faculty SeminarIn addition to research, SURP students participate in a variety of complementary scientific activities:
Campus TourDuring their seven-week stay, SURP students are considered members of Einstein’s student body, making them eligible to take part in all social activities on campus. In addition, several trips and activities are planned specifically for SURP students.
Outstanding undergraduate students considering the SURP program must meet the following criteria:
