Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Summer Research, Co-ops and Internships

Many Ramapo College Bioinformatics majors typically get invloved in the research projects of the faculty members. The students are also are highly encouraged to seek off-campus training opportunities in the form of research internships and co-ops in the academia and industry. These experiences are important for them to broaden their skills, apply the knowledge they have obtained in the classroom and gain invaluable hands-on experience.

The links below lead to well established undergraduate research internships and Co-ops outside Ramapo College. Most of them will pay a decent amount of scholarship and may even provide on-campus housing in some cases. The deadlines for applying to the summer research programs are usually in the November-March time period before the summer internship starts. The best time to apply is in the sophomore and junior year when you would have already taken some mid or higher level courses.
