Summer Internship Program
New York Genome Center’s Summer Internship Program and the Center for Integrated Cellular Analysis Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Single-Cell Genomics is an 8-week summer research opportunity for undergraduate students to gain hands-on mentorship from an assigned mentor in one of our research laboratories, scientific groups or administrative departments. Interns will gain exposure to genomics and our research, as well as have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with top genomic researchers. Throughout their time at NYGC, interns will work to develop laboratory, research skills, and professional skills essential for future graduate school or career experience. In addition to their day-to-day internship work, NYGC interns will participate in a wide variety of events and enrichment opportunities scheduled specially for our Summer Intern group, including weekly workshops, presentations, career panels, social events and much more. The duration of this year’s internship is June 5, 2023 – July 28, 2023.
Summer projects may include:
- Implementing new modules and algorithms for the analysis of sequencing data (sequence alignment, sequence assembly, and variant calling);
- Benchmarking new bioinformatics tools and help integrating them into the NYGC bioinformatics pipelines;
- Coding standalone tools or small pipelines/workflows to perform analysis of sequencing data;
- Analyzing a sequencing dataset and summarizing and visualizing results;
- Analyze error models of last generation sequencing technologies (e.g., Oxford Nanopore).
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the core mission at the NYGC. We strive to create a workplace environment that is welcoming and equitable for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, or religion. The internship program welcomes undergraduates who are members of groups traditionally underrepresented in biological, computational, biomedical, clinical, behavioral and social sciences research, including individuals from racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, and women.
