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.)
Opt for the Internship track of the RISE program, and you will spend 40 hours of each week of the session working on research projects designed by your professor. Perform research in your chosen discipline and acquire valuable technical and analytical skills while developing insight into the scientific process. We offer hands-on research opportunities in the following areas: astronomy, biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, earth and environment, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, medical laboratory research, neuroscience, physics, psychology, 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.
