Calling Principal Investigators to Host Internships!
The ISCB Student Council (ISCB-SC) is currently soliciting principal investigators (PIs) to host internships through the SC’s Internships Program. The program connects students in developing nations with PIs in developed countries to gain hands-on short-term research experience. These internships benefit the intern as well as the host lab both scientifically but also culturally. The program launched in 2009 and is committed to providing computational biology training for students from developing nations and improving competencies in the field. If you’re interested in hosting an internship or would like to know more about the internships program you can read our recently published article in PLOS Computational Biology , visit internships.iscbsc.org.
