Duke Quantitative Summer Internships in HIV/AIDS

All Summer 2019 Positions have been filled. Please check back in late 2019 for information on the 2020 applications.

For graduate students in a quantitative discipline
We are offering paid summer internships during Summer 2019 to do research in HIV/AIDS for graduate students in quantitative disciplines. Your research may include data analysis, visualization, machine learning, computer simulation, mathematical modeling or device engineering, together with opportunities for fieldwork or hands-on bench work in the lab. You will be jointly mentored by an HIV research scientist and a quantitative faculty member (who could be your current research advisor if appropriate). Interns will gain valuable hands-on experience in a collaborative setting, increased knowledge in HIV/AIDS research, and strengthen oral and written communication skills. You will also get the opportunity to present your work at national and international HIV/AIDS conferences.
