Undergraduate Summer Fellowship Opportunity in Computational Biology
The Duke Graduate Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CBB) announces a summer research opportunity for undergraduate students from underrepresented groups who are interested in research in computational biology and bioinformatics. The program will sponsor two fellows during summer 2016.
The CBB summer fellows program aims to increase student knowledge and research skills in the areas of computational biology and bioinformatics by providing the opportunity to engage in faculty-mentored research projects. The summer fellows program is particularly aimed at students who are considering pursuing a PhD in these areas.
Research in the CBB program include a wide range of topics in computational biology and bioinformatics. For details, see the faculty web pages at https://genome.duke.edu/education/CBB/faculty.

2016 Program Dates
June 1 – August 5, 2016
Program Overview and Availability
The CBB Summer Fellowship Program is open to current Sophomores and Juniors (classes of 2017 and 2018) who have successfully completed (or are enrolled in) at least one computer science course and at least on biological sciences course.
The Summer Fellowship Program requires full-time participation, and students selected for the program will not be able to take courses or engage in other employment during the 10-week program. In addition to research, fellows will participate in the activities of an umbrella summer program administered by the Duke Center for Genomics and Computational Biology (GCB).
Stipend and Housing
Housing will be provided to students accepted into this program in Duke University residence facilities for the duration of the program. In addition to housing, students will receive a stipend of $4,750.
