The Superfund Research Program (SRP) is a network of grants funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) designed to seek solutions to complex health and environmental issues associated with toxic chemicals found at the nation’s hazardous waste sites. The Duke University NIEHS-funded Superfund Research Center (DUSRC) focuses on early, low-dose exposures to toxins and their developmental impacts that are usually only evident during later life stages.
Applicants for Summer 2021 must be located in North Carolina for the duration of their internship and must be a current undergraduate or Master’s student at North Carolina Central University or Duke University (recent graduates are NOT eligible). All summer interns will be paid a competitive hourly wage and are expected to work full-time for a maximum of 35 hours/week (start/end dates are somewhat flexible between May–July). Summer internships typically last for 10 weeks, but this may vary depending on the student’s availability and the PI’s needs.
