Undergraduate Student Research Opportunities

nhinbreannmtng882013-531NH-INBRE’s goal is to provide research opportunities that encourage students to pursue graduate studies and/or research careers. We offer Undergraduate Research at Partner Institutions during both the academic year and summer; we also offer Summer Research at Dartmouth via our ISURF program, which has programs in basic science research, bioinformatics, and Nursing Research.

All students participating in an NH-INBRE research position are required to complete a Registration Form (email from Evaluation Team) and appropriate online Lab Safety Training.

Registration

In an effort to track and monitor NH-INBRE students, every NH-INBRE student researcher* must complete a registration and survey form, which provides important baseline information about the students’ opinions, expectations, and experiences in science.  The Internal Evaluation team will email each NH-INBRE student a unique link and ensure that everyone completes the survey.

*A NH-INBRE student researcher is any student paid by NH-INBRE or working in a NH-INBRE supported lab (ie. the faculty member heading the lab has a INBRE research grant or is receiving NH-INBRE Research Support and Training Grant (RSTG) funds through their home institution).

Required Training
There are two questions in the student registration that ask about lab safety and research ethics training.

Lab Safety Training: Students who have not completed this training will be directed to the online course (http://www.labsafetyworkspace.org) when they complete the registration.
Research Ethics Training: Students who have not completed the research ethics training need to connect with their faculty mentor for further instruction.

Postdoctoral Teaching Opportunities

A substantial number of Postdoctoral Fellows at Dartmouth and UNH consider (and enter) careers at predominantly undergraduate institutions such as our NH-INBRE Partners. At every partner, some courses are taught by Adjunct Faculty, and this can include Dartmouth or UNH postdocs.  Our program provides teaching experience for interested postdocs and fulfills needs at Partners. Participation in the program requires agreement of the Postdoc’s mentor. Salary support for teaching is determined and provided by the Partner. Training and other support for postdoc teaching is offered through the Dartmouth Center for Advancement of Learning (DCAL), which offers workshops in a wide variety of areas including training postdocs for teaching.
