High School Student Summer Internship

Program Description: The high school summer internship program offers stipend support for two high school students annually. Each awarded recipient will receive financial support for up to four weeks. The award may be used for travel, lodging, and living allowance, as we do NOT provide housing. Participants in the high school sum­mer internship pro­gram are expec­ted to work under instructors’ supervision on an assigned project. A report is requi­red at the end of the internship, including an essay describing a specific topic, a PPT file concisely visualizing of key points, and an oral presentation showing communication/public speaking skills. An eva­lua­tion from the pro­ject super­vi­sor and Dr. Ping will be provided. Pre­vious reci­pients of this sum­mer internship award were all accep­ted by pro­mi­nent uni­ver­si­ties inc­lu­ding UCLA, UC Berkeley, Har­vard, Duke, and Stan­ford. Requests for recommendation letters from the project supervisor and Dr. Ping must be received 6-8 weeks prior to their due date. We will begin accepting applications for Summer 2018 on March 1st, 2018.

The 2018 Summer Internship will take place June 2018 - July 2018.

For applicants of the 2018 summer internship, please submit ALL* (letters of recommendation can be sent separately) of the following materials in a single email to admin@heartbd2k.org by 11:59 PM PST on Friday, April 6th, 2018:

UCLA Undergraduate Data Science Internship

Program Description:  Quarter based internship positions are available at the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Center of Excellence for Biomedical Computing at UCLA. We offer either UCLA M199 research class credits (if eligible) or compensation based on experience. The BD2K Center of Excellence at UCLA (heartbd2k.org) is a unique federally funded program that seeks to advance the data science and applicability of Big Data to biomedical research. Hired interns will work directly under supervision of a designated project manager, Vincent Kyi, and closely with clinicians, bioinformaticians, and computer scientists in research laboratory directed by Dr. Peipei Ping (note: dry lab space has been allocated for interns), which hosts the HeartBD2K Center at UCLA. Our general investigation focus is to research and apply machine learning, text-mining, and statistical methods to discover new insights from various types of clinical data. Hired interns will also create applications not only to study cardiovascular diseases from fundamental mechanistic insights, but also to improve clinical diagnostics, therapeutic regimens, and patient’s outcomes.
