Internships are available to participate in ten week research-immersion programs at Rice University during the 2018 summer, which provide full-time financial support. No prior research experience is required. A link to the application can be found at:
The goal of these programs is to provide community college students first hand experience with cutting-edge research in a range of departments, including Biology, Chemistry, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Physics, and more. A description of the different programs can be found at:
In the case of the Bionetworks program (10 week stipend = $5,250), the possible research projects will draw from a range of approaches (classical biochemical and genetic to non-trivial theoretical models that require computation) to studies of naturally-occurring genetic networks, artificial genetic and metabolic networks, and biomolecular structure, function, and evolution. Students will participate full-time in research and workshops that focus on responsible conduct in research, professional communication, career opportunities, and the graduate school application process. Students are also provided a creative opportunity to develop innovative biotechnological ideas and a capstone research poster symposium.
Applications should be submitted online by Feb 16th 2018.
