Subject: FDA Computer Science Paid Internship
About the Company/Organization:
The FDA Research Center is a relatively new facility located roughly 10
minutes away from the University of Maryland, College Park campus, in White
Oak, MD. The FDA is a premiere institution for research, and internship
positions are highly competitive.
The Hematology Lab at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in White Oak, MD,
under the direction of Dr. Chava Kimchi-Sarfaty, is looking to hire a highly
motivated individual to take part in projects related to bioinformatics and
computational biology. This opportunity is a paid fellowship position and an
opportunity to gain significant research experience. This research lab has
been one of the leading groups for genetic research on synonymous mutations
and their relationships to Hemophilia and other disease manifestations. This
candidate will have the opportunity to work on many unique genetic projects
related to developing models and tools for disease prediction, extracting
data from new genetic and genomic databases, and analyzing experimental data.
The position is expected to begin sometime between May and August of 2015.
