Summer Undergraduate Research Program
Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics
Johns Hopkins University
McKusick‐Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine
The internship program will provide hands‐on research experience as part of
ongoing research projects with bioinformatics and genomics faculty in the
Institute of Genetic Medicine. Current areas of research include analyses of highthroughput
sequencing data to determine markers of disease, characterize genes
and their variations in species such as human and mouse, reconstruct gene
networks, and assemble and analyze genomes. The program involves full‐time
research (40 hours / week) for 10 weeks during the Summer 2012, between May
21st and July 27th, but we can make accommodations if you need to start a bit
later. Wages will be approximately $11 / hour for undergraduates and $9 / hour
for high‐school students.
How to apply: The program is open to undergraduates (including following their
senior year), as well as exceptional high‐school students. To apply, email the
following to [log in to unmask], with the subject line ‘Bioinformatics
internships’: i) an up‐to‐date resume; ii) a one page (maximum) statement of
interests outlining your goals for this internship; and iii) current college (for
undergraduates) or high‐school transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable).
In addition, please arrange to have a letter of recommendation from a teacher or
mentor emailed directly to the address above. All application materials must be
sent in PDF format. For full consideration, applications must be submitted by
March 23, 2012 (applications will be considered until the positions are filled).
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
