Physiology Scholars Program
The Physiology Scholars Program offers outstanding undergraduate students the opportunity to gain research experience by working in laboratories in the Department of Physiology.
The Department of Physiology would like to help undergraduate students who are considering a career in biomedical research to accumulate practical scientific experience while they are studying at UK. To help achieve this goal, the Department will appoint up to 3 undergraduate students each semester as Physiology Scholars. Once appointed, Scholars can maintain their status throughout their undergraduate studies and (if they request, and the Department approves) for up to one year after graduating, providing they continue to make adequate research progress.
A current Scholar who is the presenting author for a submission to a major scientific meeting (for example, Experimental Biology, Neuroscience, or AHA Scientific Sessions) can apply once to the Department of Physiology for a maximum of $1,000 to help them attend the meeting.
Scholars can apply to work with any faculty member who has a primary appointment in the Department of Physiology. Once they have been accepted into the laboratory, they are expected to
Students who wish to apply to become Physiology Scholars should send their CV and a one-page statement describing why they are interested in the Scholars program to Dr. Kenneth Campbell (email@example.com) by 5 pm on Friday April 11, 2013.
Strong candidates will be invited to interview with the Physiology Scholars Committee. All recruitment decisions will be finalized by the end of the semester. If there are no outstanding candidates, no Scholars will be appointed.
Newly appointed Scholars have until the end of the semester to request permission to join a specific laboratory. The request must be made in writing and it must be countersigned by the potential faculty mentor.
