UW-Madison Post-Bac Internship in Mechanisms of Gene Regulation

2-year Post-Bac Internship in Mechanisms of Gene Regulation for students seeking additional training before entering graduate school. The internship has proven remarkably successful, with previous interns now in a PhD program or a postdoc at Stanford, Brown, or UW-Madison. The internship is especially suitable for students who have some research experience but who will improve their competitiveness for the top PhD programs by gaining more training and authorship on a scientific publication.
