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.
- Several summer internships available each Summer 2019 - 2022 (10 weeks)
- Multi-year internships are possible
- Interns must have a quantitative background (e.g. graduate students in stats, math, CS, data science, engineering). Exceptionally strong undergraduate applicants will also be considered.
- Interns are paid (unless forbidden by NIH - e.g. T32 recipients)
- Pay for interns is approximately $21 per hour for up to 40 hours per week
- All interns will be funded to present poster/oral at a national conference
- Top 2 interns (chosen by steering committee) will be funded to present at international conference
- Funds are available for lab- or field-based research for the intern, including travel abroad where appropriate for the project
- Applications should be received by January 15, 2019 for priority consideration. Applications after the deadline will be reviewed on a rolling basis as long as internship slots are still available.
