NCI Systems Biology and Physical Sciences Summer Research Program
The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Cancer Systems Biology Consortium and Physical Sciences in Oncology Network are offering rising Junior and Senior undergraduates with outstanding research potential the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors from NCI-supported institutions for an 8-week summer fellowship. The 2018 summer research program is designed specifically for students to gain experience in the interdisciplinary fields of systems biology and physical oncology. Students who are especially interested in cancer research careers are encouraged to apply. Opportunities are available at 14 research institutions across the United States. Stipend, housing, and travel to and from the host institution are covered by NCI. Additionally, students will convene at the NIH in Bethesda, MD, mid-way through the summer to present their research and network with their peers. Detailed information about the program and application instructions can be found at: https://ncifrederick.cancer.gov/SummerProgram/. The application deadline is February 16, 2018. Please contact Shannon Hughes (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Erin Wetzel (email@example.com) if you have any questions about the program.
High School Internship Program in Integrated Mathematical Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center
High School Internship Program in Integrated Mathematical Oncology (HIP IMO) is an integrated mathematical oncology centric internship program that delivers interdisciplinary team science research experiences for high school students aged 16 or older by the time of the internship. This mentored summer training program is designed for motivated aspiring scientists to help prepare them for interdisciplinary cancer research careers. Working under the direction and guidance of faculty/scientist mentors in the Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) department, interns are involved in activities designed to foster the development of life-long research skills. Students will be assigned individual research projects appropriate to their interests and abilities and will receive a scholarship of $1,000; out-of-town students may be eligible for travel and lodging expenses up to $1,500. Applications are invited beginning November 1st, 2017 for the internship in the following year and due by February 1st, 2018. Please visit the website for more detailed information about the program and application process.
