Hi there! Does anyone have any suggestions for summer research programs for people who will be graduating spring of 2020? Specifically looking for a program focused on microbiology research, and would love to find something related to geomicrobiolgy, but would be excited for any suggestions! Thank you!

Look into the NIH IRTA, which is designed specifically for recent college graduates: (not necessarily just one summer long)

The NIH also has a list of institutions that have postbacc research programs:

If you're looking just for a summer experience, you should look for opportunities as an employee or as a research assistant in a lab you've already worked in. Most summer programs focus on current college students rather than recent graduates, though there are some that do accept recent graduates.
