The JGI/UCM Genomics Graduate Distinguished Graduate Internship Program is a program for graduate students at the University of California, Merced (UCM), to spend the summer in labs at the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI). It is jointly sponsored by the two institutions. The objectives of this program are to:
- Introduce students to emerging genomics technologies and informatics;
- Provide hands-on experience in cutting edge genomics research;
- Apply experimental and computational tools to research level problems; and,
- Analyze results using data and translate into scientific context.
Students in the program will be selected to participate in research projects (projects are different each year), including weekly group meetings to report their progress, and a final presentation to summarize their research findings. Details about previous interns are available here and here.
Note: You must be a current graduate student with the University of Merced to be eligible for this opportunity.
Details on the application process will be provided soon.
Students will be hired through Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to work at the DOE Joint Genome Institute in Walnut Creek, CA. Berkeley Lab/JGI is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic workforce committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and covered veterans.
