Summer Research Opportunity
The Kelman Scholars Program offers both a summer research internship and research internships during the academic year to undergraduate students interested in the biological sciences. The program honors the legacy of Arthur Kelman, Professor Emeritus at NCSU and a member of the National Academy of Sciences recognized for his excellence in science, mentorship, and scholarship in Plant Pathology. The complex interactions of microbes and hosts make Plant Pathology a stimulating and versatile biological discipline. Research projects for Kelman Scholars range from genomics and biotechnology to applications of the latest technologies to investigate disease ecology and management. Program Brochure
Kelman Undergraduate Research Internships are part-time, open to NCSU and local college students during the fall or spring academic semesters, and provide each intern with an honorarium per semester. Kelman Summer Research Internships are open to college students throughout the U.S. and provide full-time, 9-week research experiences coordinated through the NCSU Undergraduate Research Program. Kelman Summer Interns are provided a stipend, room and board on campus, a transportation allowance, and participation in a variety of social and professional events. All Kelman Scholars receive documented experience in the fundamentals of biological research, the opportunity to present results of their research at the NCSU Undergraduate Research Symposium, and a foundation for graduate study and careers in biology. The Plant Pathology Program director is Dr. Shuijin Hu, (919) 515-2097.
