I was recently admitted into the Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics program at IIT (not to mention with a very generous Herald scholarship!). My long-term career goal is to do research in this field, which I know requires a Ph.D., so I am curious as to where IIT students typically end up for graduate school.
Related sidenote: I am very interested in doing undergraduate research as soon as possible, which is one of the main reasons I am drawn to IIT. I am worried, however, that academics, research, and a job will be a bit cumbersome, especially if I want to do significant research. As a way to kill two birds with one stone, is there any way to get paid for doing research during the school year? I am not expecting a lot of pay (I would be more than happy with minimum wage), I was just wondering if there was any possibility at all.
