Student Research Opportunities

Overview

The HBHE Genetics Research Group offers valuable research opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students. Working with an interdisciplinary team of experts in the areas of genetic counseling, health behavior, health education, and bioethics (among others), qualified students can be given the opportunity to gain experience in the field of research on the ethical, social and behavioral implications of advances in genomics. Through Summer Internships and Research Assistant positions, students are involved with the various on-going research projects further developing skills in areas such as the following:

  • Development of health education materials
  • Recruitment and outreach
  • Research interviewing
  • Data management and analysis
  • Critical review of relevant literatures
  • Manuscript and grant preparation

Summer Internships are available and prioritized for U-M SPH students between their first and second years. Internships are an excellent learning experience and we encourage students to take advantage of these great opportunities.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter and CV to hbhegenetics@umich.edu
