Five Science Horizons Research Internships are available for undergraduates interested in careers in science. The internships are designed to enable students to undertake mentored research projects in computationally intensive areas in biology or biomedical fields at off-campus environments. Potential internship sites include industry and government labs, research universities, and medical centers. Fellowship stipend - $5000 for living and travel expenses.
Application consists of a short proposal outlining your 10 week project, a personal statement (approx. 250 words) explaining why you want to conduct research, your mentor's name and affiliation, letter of support from your mentor, and two letters of recommendation from individuals who can comment on your potential to conduct research. Support and letters of recommendation can be emailed to Professor Brodfuehrer at email@example.com.
