ISGMH’s RADAR project is one of the research studies participating in the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s Summer Research Internship Program, which introduces undergraduate students to the field of drug abuse and addiction research through paid internship placements across the country. The internship program is open to all undergraduate applicants, but places priority on recruiting students who are part of groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical, behavioral and clinical sciences (American Indians/Alaska Natives, Black/African Americans, Hispanic/Latinos, and Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders). During their 8-week placement, the Summer Research Program interns will have the opportunity to work with leading scientists and researchers, and will also be matched with a mentor.
NIDA’s internship application website opened on January 1, 2018, and the deadline for all materials to be submitted is February 12, 2018. Interested and eligible students are encouraged to apply for a placement at RADAR study, which aims to understand how co-occurring problems of substance abuse, HIV, sexually transmitted infections, mental disorders, and violence develop among young men who have sex with men and their partners over time.
