United States Army Institute of Surgical ResearchBELCAMP, Md.—The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is currently accepting applications for 2017 summer internship appointments with the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR). Undergraduate students from accredited colleges and universities are encouraged to apply for research appointments at USAISR’s facility located in San Antonio, Texas.

The intent of the undergraduate student internship is to provide an opportunity for students interested in science, engineering or medical career fields to participate in research directed at improving the care of injured military service members and society at large.

This mentored research experience will expose interns to ongoing efforts in integrated science, technology and engineering solutions at the nation's premier military trauma research institute. 

Applicants must have completed at least their first year class requirements for a bachelor’s degree with an overall GPA of 3.5 or higher. A science or engineering program of study is preferred. 

Selected candidates will be compensated $2,750 per month, based upon full-time participation in the internship which runs from May 24 through Aug. 2, 2017, with an optional two-week extension. All applications must be submitted online at no later than Dec. 31, 2016.
