OGI Summer Research Fellowships

The Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) Summer Research Fellowships in Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics or related ethics and policy research are available to undergraduate students again in 2013. 

OGI Summer Research Fellowships offer undergraduate students studying at Ontario universities unique opportunities to engage in meaningful, real-life research in the areas of genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics or related ethical, economic, environmental, legal or social issues (“GE3LS”).  Under the direction of a supervisor in academia or industry*, Fellows will conduct research in one of these areas in a laboratory or other appropriate academic or industrial setting. *OGI will provide assistance with finding a supervisor for anyone interested in applying for an industrial fellowship.

These Fellowships not only provide students with the opportunity to gain research experience, but also include a mandatory orientation session at OGI, participation in biweekly information sessions via web conferencing, and an opportunity to present their summers’ work by way of PowerPoint and poster presentations to their supervisors, OGI staff and special guests at a final meeting in August 2013.

The value of the 2013 Summer Research Fellowship is $5,000.  A travel allowance will also be available to students and supervisors located outside the Greater Toronto Area to offset the costs of attending OGI Summer Research Fellowship events in Toronto.  Please note:  Recipient may hold only one Summer Research Fellowship award.

Ontario universities, institutions and/or companies are strongly encouraged to support these outstanding students by supplementing the amount of the award using other sources.  Universities may also provide fringe benefits, such as vacation, medical insurance, etc.
