Quantitative Methods for HIV Researchers: Summer Internships

Funding Agency:
Duke University

The program offers full-time summer internships for graduate students in the quantitative sciences to conduct research in leading HIV/AIDS laboratories, co-mentored by both an HIV/AIDS researcher and quantitative science faculty. These internships immerse graduate students in the quantitative sciences necessary for research currently underway in leading HIV/AIDS laboratories. HIV/AIDS focused PIs submit their proposals in the fall and student applicants are screened and matched with appropriate projects in Clinical, Translational, or Socio-behavioral Science. The 12 week Summer Internship program has been extremely successful, for example the 2020 internship final survey showed that 8 of 9 interns rated the program experience as excellent, and 6/9 interns responded that were highly likely to pursue a career in HIV in the future.

  • Applications should be received by midnight Dec 11, 2022 for priority consideration.
  • Applications after this deadline will be reviewed on a rolling basis through February 2023, as long as internship slots are available.
