Description:
The Undergraduate Summer Internship is our headline program for bringing new minds into our scientific community. Each year, we recruit a vibrant cohort of undergraduates with a passion for science and a curiosity about what doing a PhD or MD/PhD might look like. Interns are paid $5000 to work in labs at Harvard's Quantitative Biology Initiative and the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School for 10 weeks.

Last year, we conducted our immersive research program in an entirely remote fashion and still had a blast. This year, we expect to do the same. Research projects will use computational approaches to address questions in biology. Experience in computation is not required, you will be taught the skills needed for your project during the internship.
