Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

Description:
The goal of this program is to give young scientists at the undergraduate level hands-on research experience in bioinformatics as part of ongoing research projects within the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB). The program involves full-time research (40 hours/week). During the first week you will choose your primary project for the summer from among several projects offered by faculty mentors. You will also get to meet graduate students and postdocs in the Center who work on related projects. They will help co-mentor you throughout the duration of your project.

The program provides wages of $12.50/hour. Due to the nature of the funding source, interns are not eligible for overtime.

At the end of the summer you will put together a report outlining the results of your project and give a short presentation describing your project and what you have achieved.

In addition to research, there will be other seminars and research presentations, both at CBCB and elsewhere on campus. We will announce any seminars that might be of interest to you. In the past there have been weekly talks given by visiting faculty and graduate students on their research.
