Ragon Institute Catherine Othieno Sempa Memorial Post Baccalaureate Scholars Program
The Ragon Institute of Mass General, MIT and Harvard was established in 2009 with a gift from the Phillip T. and Susan M. Ragon Foundation, creating a collaborative scientific mission among these institutions to harness the immune system to combat and cure human diseases. With a focus on global infectious diseases, the Ragon Institute draws scientists, clinicians and engineers from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise to study and understand the immune system with the goal of benefiting patients.
The Catherine Othieno Sempa Memorial Post Baccalaureate Scholars Program engages talented college graduates from HBCUs and Puerto Rican universities in a comprehensive and immersive two-year program in immunology research. The program is designed to diversify the field of academic research by inviting recent college graduates to gain knowledge, expertise, and skills inside and outside the lab.
Participants will be employed as paid, full-time Research Technicians under the supervision and mentorship of a Ragon Institute Principal Investigator and/or designated Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. Participants will receive a competitive salary and benefits consistent with employment as a Research Technician at the Institute.
