Indiana University PreHealth REU Summer 2019 Call for Applications

Posted by Tim on January 28, 2019 in Academics, Honors Experiences, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

Call for Applications

We invite undergraduates to apply to the Proactive Health Informatics Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site for Summer 2019 (application: http://bit.ly/ProHealthREU2019​).

What is the Proactive Health Informatics REU Site?

The Proactive Health Informatics REU aims to build usable and intelligent pervasive systems that empower people to manage their health and see how their everyday decisions impact their progress to achieve future health goals. Our REU site will provide students with a unique opportunity to learn techniques in the areas of human computer interaction, pervasive computing (mobile or wearable), environmental sensing (ambient and on-body), machine learning (vision recognition and signal processing), and the implications of technologies on society. Students will learn appropriate methods, software tools, and analysis techniques related to their project, thus experience in these areas is not necessarily required. In addition, all students will learn scholarly professional development skills, such as synthesizing related work, identifying research aims, designing ethical studies, collecting data, analyzing results, and presenting results in papers and presentations.

More Information: http://prohealth.soic.indiana.edu/reu/

Updates: https://www.facebook.com/iuprohealthreu

What will students do?

REU Participants will:

  • be trained to become the next generation of
  •  scholars to conduct cross-cutting computing research;
  •  
  • prepare for graduate education and research
  •  career opportunities through preparatory workshops and one-on-one mentoring;
  •  
  •  
  • engage in an interactive mentoring relationship
  •  with a faculty member and graduate student;

Logistics

Our 2019 REU dates are Sunday, May 19 through Friday, July 12, 2019.

For the 8-weeks of participation, each student will receive travel to and from Bloomington, a $4000 stipend, free room and board, and GRE preparation (if wanted).

How to Apply?

We encourage undergraduate students interested in computing/informatics oriented areas – independent of experience or years in their respective programs – to apply to our REU program.

We strongly invite applications from women, students of color, first-generation college students, gender and sexual minorities, veterans, and students with disabilities. Previous research experience is not a requirement.

Please complete an application as soon as possible (we will review, interview, and select participants on a rolling basis starting immediately). We typically have our REUs selected by early March, so the sooner one applies, the better their changes of consideration.

Upstate Medical University Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Deadline February 4th

Posted by Tim on December 28, 2018 in Fellowships, Honors Experiences, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

The State University of New York Upstate Medical University in collaboration with SUNY ESF is offering fellowships for its 2019 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program. The aim of the SURF program is to nurture undergraduate students into careers that combine biomedical research into their chosen profession, providing them an understanding of research across disciplines and fields. In an intensive ten-week summer program, undergraduates with appropriate faculty guidance will formulate their own proposal, carry out research under the supervision of one of our faculty, write a research paper and have the potential to see their work published. In the process, students will attend research seminars, present and participate in a student journal club, present their work, and participate in discussions on careers in research and how to apply to graduate, medical, nursing or other health professions schools. Students are given ample opportunities to interact directly with many of our faculty and students. This is a newly enlarged program that will offer students the opportunity to perform research from a wide variety of perspectives (basic science, medicine, nursing, environmental health, and physical therapy).

The program runs from Monday, June 3, 2019, through Friday, August 9, 2019.

Each fellow will be provided a $3,500 stipend for the period plus housing.

External Icon

Applicants to the program should be undergraduate students in good academic standing, who will be between their junior and senior years during the summer of 2019. Applicants must have a strong interest in pursuing post undergraduate studies in fields offered at SUNY Upstate or SUNY ESF.

The main criteria for the selection of fellows will be personal scholarship, academic excellence, and the match of applicant interests with those of participating Upstate and ESF faculty members. International students who currently have a J-1 or F-1 visa, and who are already attending school in the United States, are eligible to apply.

Depending on a student’s research interests they are paired with faculty in one of the 5 colleges (Graduate Studies, Nursing, Medicine, Health Professions or SUNY ESF) to learn more about those professions and to perform cutting-edge research. All students will interact throughout the 10 weeks allowing them to see research from many different facets by participating in inter-professional education events.

Students should be specifically interested in pursuing a PhD, MS, MD, MD/PhD, DNP, DPT, MPH, or PA. In addition, students from SUNY institutions or underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Apply online here: http://www.upstate.edu/grad/programs/summer.php
