UofSC's Big Data Health Summer Research Program

We are writing to you to seek your assistance in recruiting qualified pre-doctoral (masters and pre-dissertation graduate students) in the physical and quantitative sciences for the recently awarded NIH T35 grant (T35AI165252-01) short summer training program titled “Big Data Health Science Scholar Program for Infectious Diseases” program at UofSC. Eligible students should have completed at least 1 year in their graduate program with a GPA of 3.5 or better. 

This program is designed to address the shortage of Big Data health science workforce and promote Big Data health science research at UofSC and beyond by introducing eligible students to the application of data science to infectious disease. 

We plan to recruit eight (8) students each year who are interested in learning about how to apply data science to infectious disease related research. This is a 3-month, full-time (40 hours per week) program to work alongside established scientists on one or more Big Data Health-related studies. Each student trainee will be involved in a specific research project, actively participating in a hands-on manner in a research laboratory currently conducting studies related to Big Data Health Science.  More details about this program can be found in the flyer below. Please share this flyer with your students and faculty, and we look forward to hosting the students of the University of South Carolina-Columbia! Click here for more information.
