The BLAST AI Research Program (LLC) is a summer research program that focuses on making AI and machine learning research more accessible for talented high school students. The program consists of a two week bootcamp that teaches students all of the essentials of machine learning and data science, and then the remaining six weeks will consist of the students working on a novel AI research project supervised by a mentor. For this upcoming summer 2023, we are looking for UMD students who may be interested in a part-time mentor/principal investigator role.

The commitment for the role will be approximately roughly 8 hours per week, and will provide you with valuable experience mentoring students and guiding them through the process of conducting and publishing advanced AI research. Aside from competitive pay and flexibility, we pride ourselves in unique benefits like getting papers published and furthering substantial research. Many of our research groups last summer ended up beating state of the art algorithms in their fields, and presented at and got published in IEEE conferences. 

If you would like to learn more about us and what we accomplished this past summer, feel free to check out our website at If you are interested in this opportunity, please fill out the mentor interest form which can be found on the "Mentor Hiring" page of the website.

We look forward to hearing from you!
