The UCSF Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics (www.rbvi.ucsf.edu) has an incredible summer internship opportunity for a TEALS high school student. The selected student(s) will work on one of two individual projects alongside professional programmers, contributing to cutting-edge research, and developing the skills necessary for a career in software development.

 

In order to be eligible for this opportunity, students must:

  • Currently or previously participated in a TEALS class
  • Have working knowledge of Python or Java
  • Be able to commit to 20 hours per week over the summer
  • Have a reliable means of transportation to and from the UCSF Mission Bay campus

Application deadline is May 15th! Students should send the following application materials to scooter@cgl.ucsf.edu:

  • Description of their programming abilities
  • Why they are interested in this particular internship
  • Their availability over the summer – RBVI is flexible about the duration of the internship, but most projects will take 2-3 months to come up to speed on the environment and science and complete the design and implementation
  • A letter of recommendation from their Computer Science teacher, Biology teacher, or TEALS mentor
