Summer Research Program

Every summer, the College of Pharmacy offers a number of research opportunities to current students. Students selected for the program will work with a College of Pharmacy or Rosalind Franklin University mentor to complete a research project. Students may gain research experience in a variety of different areas, since projects may be focused on laboratory, clinical, or educational research topics. See below for previous student projects.

Many positions require a commitment of 37.5 hours per week for a period of eight weeks. These may be paid positions with a stipend for students who qualify for work-study funds or volunteer positions.  There may also be unpaid part-time positions that could earn elective credits.

The Summer Research Program normally starts at the beginning of June and runs through the end of July; adjustments to this timeframe may be possible, if agreed to by your research mentor.

If you are interested, you will apply for these positions during the academic year.
