Our research fellowship program is set to begin within the next two weeks, and we’re really excited to share what this program is all about. The goal of the research fellowship is to provide life science students with an opportunity to participate in exciting research projects and gain experience while learning about bioinformatics. These projects come from a variety of research areas, including oncology, immunology, neuroscience, agrotech, biotech, ecology and others. Each project consists of various datasets, primarily focusing on high throughput -omics technologies.
Who this program is for:
- Graduate and undergraduate students pursuing a degree in molecular and cell biology, bioinformatics, neuroscience, etc..
- Young researchers looking to learn more about bioinformatics and computational biology
- Students looking for project exposure with bioinformatics specialization interested to join existing projects
We have a limited number of positions available, and we are looking for talented and motivated students who are quick learners and are eager to contribute. These are students that can assist with bioinformatics project development as they learn from participating in our online programs. They would be helping diverse teams of students, researchers, and faculty with their analysis and their analysis result communication, contributing detailed project descriptions and tutorials to our training programs.
What you will learn:
- How to think through a bioinformatics project from beginning to the end
- How to make the analysis reproducible and rigorous
- How to leverage high performance infrastructure and streamline analysis of large datasets
- How to effectively communicate your findings to interdisciplinary teams
- How to conduct research using bioinformatics tools and methods
A research fellow will have the opportunity to grow his/her knowledge and skill sets in the latest industry trends and technologies in bioinformatics while simultaneously contributing to research projects that utilize those skills in real world applications. This a great way to gain experience in a rapidly expanding area of life science research.
The fellowship is a part-time role that requires some time commitment (less than 15 hours per week) but follows a flexible schedule; this program would be best suited for current students who’ve gone through some university-level coursework. We would ideally like research fellows who are based in Louisiana but that is not required, just a preference.
