January 11, 2021
The HuBMAP consortium has launched a virtual summer internship program for minority and underrepresented students, as defined by NIH, which will give students the opportunity to work with consortium members for 10-12 weeks conducting research and receiving invaluable mentorship and training. Students who have completed more than 1 year of undergraduate studies and who are interested in a STEM field can apply for the program. More eligibility and application details are available on the internship program website.
Internship opportunities will be available at six labs connected to the HuBMAP consortium, which range in focus from bioinformatics, genomics, computational image analysis, to data visualization. Students will have the chance to study cells or conduct data analysis using advanced technology and working with some of the best scientists in their field. The labs are located at Stanford University, Harvard Medical School, and the University of Pennsylvania. The internship will involve faculty mentorship, a research project, and involvement in a seminar series involving fellow students. Students selected for the program will receive a $6,000 stipend.
