Kelley scholarships available to graduating Biology students

Dear Biology students,


The Kelley School of Business has developed a new program called “College+Kelley” and has up to 6 scholarships for strong IU students graduating in Biology who wish to supplement their undergraduate degree in Biology with a Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) degree from the Kelley School of Business. The scholarships will cover up to 100% of tuition, and the program does not require any prior business or information systems courses. Something else to note is that if you have a GPA above 3.2, we can waive the GRE requirement.

Lynch lab is looking for undergrad researcher

The Lynch lab needs one or two undergrad researchers, starting immediately (this summer, right now). The general intellectual field can be thought of as either mechanisms of  evolution, or as pretty straight-forward microbiology. See our web page ( for a broader view of what we do.

Students will start by preparing media, autoclaving, and feeding Paramecium (really!)—training provided. This is work we pay for, after a training period. It is easy, but requires lots of reliability and responsibility, working in a busy lab environment, etc. There is plenty of opportunity for growth into research for credit, and senior thesis projects.

Please email me if interested; include a CV. Preference will be shown for students who can be around some over holidays, and are in Bloomington over most of the summer: Paramecium rest for no one!
