Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
Broad Summer Research Program (BSRP) - broad.io/bsrp
 
The Broad Summer Research Program (BSRP) offers students with a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in STEM disciplines the opportunity to conduct intensive research in a collaborative community. 
 
BSRP participants spend the summer performing original computational or experimental-based research in labs across the Broad Institute’s research areas, from cancer to infectious disease to computational biology. In addition, the program features a rich curriculum outside the lab that emphasizes career development, personal development, and teamwork in a small cohort. 
 
Deadline: January 11, 2021

Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
Broad Biomedical Postbaccalaureate Scholars Program - broad.io/bbps
 
An innovative, two-year program, BBPS offers participants a comprehensive, structured and immersive experience that includes groundbreaking research and academic and career guidance. BBPS participants will carry out research as paid, full-time Associate Computational Biologists or Research Associates, working alongside leading scientists within the Broad Institute.
 
Eligibility - seniors or recent graduates who majored in the biological, physical or computer sciences, engineering or mathematics, and are interested in pursuing a graduate degree (M.S., Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D.) 
 
Deadline: January 18, 2021

Virginia Commonwealth University

The Biomedical Sciences Doctoral Portal (BSDP) at Virginia Commonwealth University is hosting a virtual open house on Tuesday, December 1st from 4:00 – 6:00 PM EST. The BSDP oversees admissions for and recruits students into six Ph.D. programs within the School of Medicine. During the open house, Dr. Roxann Roberson-Nay, Assistant Dean for Graduate Recruitment and Admissions, will introduce the BSDP; the six Program Directors will provide information about their programs; you will have the opportunity to engage with students from each of the six programs in separate breakout rooms; and there will be plenty of time for questions. You can register here or through the attached flier.
