Duke CFAR statistics graduate student summer internship on HIV/AIDS research project

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Do you have an HIV/AIDS research project that could benefit from having a full-time statistics graduate student work on over the summer, and are you willing to co-mentor the student with a faculty statistician? 

The Duke CFAR is sponsoring two summer internships for graduate students to work on experimental design, statistical modeling and/or data analysis on a HIV/AIDS-related research project. The students will be co-mentored by a CFAR investigator and a Biostatistics and Computational Biology Core faculty member. Typically, students will use the work done during the summer internship to develop a Master’s thesis, and continue working on the project till the end of the academic year (May 2016). Students will be available for up to 40 hours per week over summer, and work can begin once the project is selected and approved.

Projects will be selected based on:
1. Alignment with CFAR mission objectives
2. Appropriateness of proposal to serve as basis for a student thesis

If you have an appropriate research project, please send a brief (1-3 page) proposal to cliburn.chan@duke.edu  by 5 PM Friday10 June 2016. We expect to fund 2 such projects, depending on the quality of proposals and student applicants. Please specify:
