Through an NIAID funded research education program, the Quantitative Sciences Core can sponsor up to 12 fully funded graduate student interns to perform HIV/AIDS research over summer. Interns will be co-mentored by someone in the PI group and a quantitative faculty mentor and work full-time over the summer. Many continue with the project as part of their thesis research, although this is not a program requirement.
Past projects have involved data science, machine learning, statistical inference, and mathematical modeling, but we are open to all quantitative projects (e.g. epidemiology, health services research, bioinformatics pipeline development). The main requirements are that you agree to co-mentor the intern, and that any data necessary for the project is available by May 2022.
If you have a suitable project, please send a project title and brief description (a few sentences) to Dr. Cliburn Chan - this will be circulated to the applicants. Email email@example.com if you have any questions or want to find out more.
The program has already interviewed and short-listed 14 graduate students for the internships and needs to match them up with appropriate projects.
Responses are requested by the end of the week.
