Undergraduate Research Program

Are you a student looking for summer research experience? The CBR Summer Studentship Program provides the students with an opportunity to get hands-on lab experience during the summer months and to present their research at the CBR Research Day. The CBR also enhances our summer students’ learning with research skills workshops, tours of campus facilities, and complementary social events.

Principal Investigators and Postdoctoral Fellows can apply to supervise a summer student. Annual deadline for application is April 1.
If you are a PDF, download the CBR PDF Summer Student Application 2018.
If you are a PI, download the CBR PI Summer Student Application 2018.

As an undergraduate student, there are two options to apply:

  1. Contact a CBR PI or a Postdoctoral Fellow you are interested in working with.
    It is good practice to send them your CV, cover letter and/or statement of interests.***
  2. If you can’t find a PI or a PDF, apply through a general application:
    ubmit your CV and Letter of Interest by March 15 to julie.kora@ubc.ca. Letter of Interest should describe your relevant accomplishments, interests, and career goals. Maximum length for CV is 2 pages and for Letter of Interest is 1 page.

***Most summer students are hired through contacting the PIs directly. Only a small proportion get in through a general application.
