Research Internships and Visiting Students in CBRC

Bio-Ontology Research Group

​We currently have multiple research internships available. 

Our group works on challenging problems on the boundary between artificial intelligence, biology and biomedicine. We are looking for visiting research students to join our team for a period of three to six months. The aim of the internship will be to work on computational algorithms to integrate, mine and analyze biological data and gain research experience.

Candidates should be in their final year of a B.S. degree, or hold a B.S. degree, in computer science, mathematics, statistics, or bioinformatics. Candidates should have strong programming skills.  A background in algorithms, data mining, machine learning, or knowledge representation is desirable.

Visiting research students are entitled to a monthly stipend, free accommodation, and round-trip airfare.

Candidates who are willing to work in an exciting environment on computational biology, biomedical informatics, systems biology, and knowledge representation are encouraged to apply. To apply, please send a CV and a brief description of previous research to Robert Hoehndorf
