SeattleStatSummer for Biomedical Data Science Research Training for undergraduates is an 8-week comprehensive summer internship experience in statistics and data science in biomedical research. In partnership with Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute, this program provides a mentored research experience aimed at increasing awareness of and interest in pursuing careers in statistics and data science research.
The fields of statistics and data science are vibrant and indispensable; biomedical research is exciting for intellectually curious people and should be accessible to all who are interested and wish to contribute. Diversity brings innovation and creativity to science. This is why we want to engage and enable talented undergraduates from underrepresented communities to gain skills and opportunities in statistics and data science.
Well-qualified statistical researchers and data scientists are integral partners in biomedical research. Students with advanced training in statistics and data science are well positioned to provide essential customized analytic solutions to critical research problems.
Our 8-week internship program will:
We will recruit students who:
Students who are from a population identified by the NIH as underrepresented in the biomedical sciences by ethnicity (Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian/Alaska Native, or Pacific Islanders) are especially encouraged to apply.
