Given the current uncertainty of the global pandemic and work from home situation for 2021, this internship is currently planned to be virtual with the option for interns to work remotely from within the U.S. Borders. We will keep candidates informed if this changes.
Due to the ever changing situation concerning the COVID-19 global pandemic, for our summer 2021 internship program we will only consider international candidates who are currently in the US and will remain in the US for the duration of the internship.
The mission of the Development Sciences, Safety Assessment Computational Toxicology group is to enable early and accurate compound safety profiling by leveraging all relevant data (in vitro, ex vivo, in vivo), advanced analytics and computational modeling.
We are looking for a summer intern with a combination of toxicology and computational experiences to help with data processing, modeling, and software engineering tasks. Projects may include:
* Data collection, curation, and management
* Statistical/QSAR/QSPR modeling
* Database management and integration
* Developing user interface of inhouse computational tools
* R, Python, Database, Java, SQL experience.
* Programming skills, and some understanding of chemistry and toxicology.
* Candidates with experience with toxicological data and computational interests are encouraged to apply.
