    The RISE Internship track gives students the opportunity to conduct research projects with faculty mentors. 

    (Information about the RISE Practicum track, which focuses on group research in computational neurobiology, can be found here.)

    In this six-week program, academically-motivated rising seniors will conduct research for 40 hours per week under the guidance of a faculty member, postdoctoral fellow, or graduate student mentor. Perform research in your chosen discipline and acquire valuable technical and analytical skills while developing insight into the scientific process. We offer remote research opportunities in the following areas: astronomy, biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, computer science, earth and environment, electrical and computer engineering, mathematics and statistics, mechanical engineering, medical laboratory research, neuroscience, nutrition, physics, psychological and brain sciences, and public health.

    In addition, one day a week, RISE students of both tracks come together for workshops designed to prepare them for advanced study in the sciences.
