Announcing the Protocol Labs Associate Research Program Manager (ARPM) summer program

Protocol Labs is currently accepting applications for its Associate Research Program Manager (ARPM) ten-week summer program (2021). The ARPM experience is an opportunity for undergraduate students to learn to support and grow research programs; drive research initiatives; and engage in meta-research analyses, exploring high-level ways to improve the efficacy and impact of scientific research.

Running from late June to early September, the ARPM program is a chance for early-stage researchers to explore alternative career opportunities within the research ecosystem and gain experience developing, executing, and evaluating cross-disciplinary research initiatives within a dynamic tech startup. ARPMs will learn how research labs are run and funded, how research consortia are established and coordinated, and how fundamental research relates to the development of practical applications. With the support of the research management team, ARPMs will also pursue a research project focusing on how to understand and improve the pace of scientific progress.

Many undergraduate (and even graduate) students in STEM are uncertain what career path they wish to follow. The ARPM program is an opportunity to explore a particular niche within research that has applications in academia, industry, and anywhere else research is conducted.
