Internships

Research Opportunities in Computational/Data Science 

Grad Students

NSF IRES Site- China: Algorithms & Software for SUpercomputers with emerging aRchitEctures (ASSURE) 

Spend 8 weeks in China this Summer investigating the capabilities of classical and emerging HPC hardware architectures and how these can be leveraged for research in a variety of science and engineering disciplines. Research areas include: Earth & Weather Systems, Advanced Manufacturing, Big Data and Machine Learning.

 

Bioinformatics/Computational Biology MS Intern

Seeking highly motivated Masters student interested in an internship or long-term project (6mo–1yr) in developing computational approaches to accelerate drug-/vaccine-target discovery against infectious diseases. You will be a perfect fit if you have a background in bioinformatics, computational biology, statistics/biostatistics, computer science, genetics, or related fields. Programming experience in R, Python, Perl, and/or C/C++ is a huge plus. In addition to these technical qualifications, we are looking for someone who can work well in a team, work hard, and give/take constructive feedback.

Undergrads

MI-OSiRIS Technical Internship (Open Storage Research Infrastructure)

Potential students interested in the development and optimization of bioinformatics workflows on the OSiRIS deployment and/or performance testing and tuning of computable distributed storage, should apply. This will be an educational experience but some experience with Linux, ssh, git, and programming would be helpful to get started.

 

Advanced Computational Research Experience for Students

Advanced Computational Research Experience for Students (ACRES) is a  paid 10-week paid summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in computational and data science. Students participating in the program are exposed to the development and enhancement of algorithms, models, and software for applications in research areas that require high-performance computing resources. Research areas include: Computational biology, computational physics, computational chemistry, computational mathematics, engineering, big data & earth sciences, Image analysis and bioinformatics.

 

Bioinformatics/Computational Biology UG Intern

Seeking highly motivated and quantitatively-minded undergraduate students to work on developing computational approaches to accelerate drug-/vaccine-target discovery against infectious diseases. Students will learn many aspects of data-intensive biology. A background in bioinformatics, computational biology, statistics/biostatistics, computer science, genetics, or related fields would be a perfect fit. Some programming experience in R, Python, Perl, and/or C/C++ is a huge plus.
