MCO Program @ Harvard Summer Research Internship

Harvard University Systems Biology Summer Internship Program
The Systems Biology community at Harvard invites interested undergraduates belonging to groups that are under-represented in the sciences to apply for a 10-week paid summer internship program. Interns will work on research projects spanning many fields of science, from biology (including systems biology, biophysics, bioinformatics and genomics) to applied mathematics and computation. Interns will have the opportunity to learn a range of cutting-edge techniques in the exciting and dynamic research environment at the FAS Center for Systems Biology and the Department for Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School. In addition to a mentored research experience, participants have the opportunity to participate in trips to local research institutes, weekly seminars, lectures by distinguished faculty, and  career events designed to augment and enrich their knowledge about scientific research and careers in sciences. Participants must be United States citizens or permanent residents.
