Summer Science Research Internships for Yeshiva University Students at Bar-Ilan University

Summer Science Research Internships for Yeshiva University Students at Bar-Ilan University


BIU-YU Summer Program, Class of 2017


In summer 2017 Bar Ilan University hosted 29 budding scientists in another successful cohort of the Summer Research Internships for North American students. The abstracts of their research are now available (scroll down). The program was initiated in 2011 by Prof. Chaim Sukenik who headed it for 3 years. Since the summer of 2014, the program has been directed by Prof. Ari Zivotofsky.

The BIU-YU Summer Science Research Internship program places select undergraduates from Yeshiva College and Stern College in one of the state-of-the-art research laboratories of Bar-Ilan's Life Science, Brain Research, Exact Science, or Engineering Faculties. It enables talented undergraduate science majors to take part in the research of one of Bar-Ilan's more than 180 distinguished science and engineering faculty members.

Interested students should refer to the web pages of senior faculty  (or other Bar-Ilan faculty not listed; this list may not be complete), and identify 5 research groups with which they might be interested in working. These choices (in preferential order) should be entered into the application form. The application form also enables applicants to express an interest in different areas of research by simply entering the relevant key words. Try to be specific. The more specific you are, the easier it is to place you and the more likely the placement will be mutually beneficial. We will then do the match-making for you. Prospective applicants should understand that well thought out choices of key words and/or specific research groups will greatly enhance the extent to which the research experience can match their skills and interests.

Financial Overview: Students will provide their own transportation to/from Israel. The program is generously funded by several BIU and YU donors. During the program, participants are provided with housing at Yeshiva University's Gruss Institute in Jerusalem. Daily transportation will be provided between Gruss and Bar-Ilan campus (Ramat Gan), as will breakfasts and dinners (Sundays through Thursdays). Each student's contribution to the cost of running the program is  $100 payable in cash (dollars or shekels) at the beginning of the program.
