ISHG Summer Research Studentships


We are delighted to announce these studentships to support undergraduate students (with an interest in human genetics) to complete a short research project. We hope that this will allow students the opportunity to become familiar with research techniques and perhaps complete a pilot study that may aid grant applications later in the year.

We propose to support 2 students, each for 6-8 weeks, with €250 per week and our first students will begin in summer 2024. Those that are successful will be expected to publish their work +/or present at ISHG, ideally at our 2024 conference if the work is ready on time.

Key dates are as follows:

  1. Supervisors submit a brief project proposal to an ISHG committee member, via email, before 8 th Dec 2023
  2. Application for students opens 1 st February 2024 & closes on 16 th March 2024 – CV & short application form, details to be announced in December
  3. Shortlist of candidates drawn up with interviews
  4. Successful candidates select their project in April 2024
