Origins Student Research

The Institute for the Science of Origins is excited to sponsor our undergraduate research program at Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.

 

Students are full participants in cutting edge research -side by side with top scientists- to investigate everything from the big bang to the developing mind and emerging life.

Students may be involved with ISO scientists’ research across diverse disciplines for as little as a few weeks or for a longterm research partnership that may last through a student’s 4-year undergraduate career and in some cases beyond!

For summer research, students can apply through SOURCE, specifying that they would like to be placed with an ISO Fellow (see list below for a typical summer’s opportunities).

The ISO Fellows listed below have indicated their particular interest in accepting students into their labs and research programs but many others are eager to involve students variously as volunteers or paid assistants (with or without work-study).

Please contact the scientists listed below or any of the ISO Fellows listed on our Fellows page.
