Internships for Summer 2018 and Opportunities in Computer Science

In Sewanee 

There are multiple sources for internships and summer research at Sewanee;  see the Career & Leadership Development internship pages for complete lists. 

Specific to Computer Science:

  • The McGriff-Bruton Internship in Mathematics and Computer Science is offered each year to fund students working on a project with a professor in our department.
  • The Fund for Innovative Teaching and Learning is a campus-wide, competitive fund for collaborative research with one or more professors, possibly spanning departments.

For each, the professor(s) must be willing to supervise a project over the summer.  Both pay over $300/week for the duration.  FITL projects are expected to be student-initiated; both require an application by the beginning of March so check the Career services link for details.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

Vanderbilt’s Biomedical Informatics summer internship program is looking for summer interns interested in the intersection of computing with health, specifically around three focus areas: computationally-intensive approaches (e.g., data science, natural language processing, predictive analytics), precision health (e.g., phenome/genome-wide association studies, genomics, proteomics), and human-technology interaction (e.g., human-computer interaction, human factors engineering, sociotechnical systems).
 
In addition to learning more about biomedical/health informatics and participating in meaningful research projects, as part of our NSF REU site, students will receive a stipend, housing, a food allowance, compensation for travel to/from Nashville at the start/end of summer, and coverage for travel to a conference if their work is selected for presentation. We’re currently updating our website to add the NSF-related information, but interested students are encouraged to contact Kim Unertl directly:

The National Science Foundation funds a number of REU sites each summer, spread across the country, from liberal arts schools to large research institutions. The entire list of sites and the projects that are expected to be offered can be found at the NSF website

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Site at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) is inviting applications for summer 2018. In our program, students will experience research and other career-enhancing activities in an interdisciplinary environment with special focus on Computational Sensing.

The REU students will receive a stipend of up to $5000, up to $725 for travel, and up to $1200 for meals. They will also stay free on campus.
