Women in Science Project (WISP) Research Internship Program
The WISP Research Internship Program matches first-year undergraduate women with faculty mentors in paid, part-time research internships in the sciences. Please check the online database (http://wisp.dartmouth.edu/session/new) for hands-on research experiences and opportunities with a research scientist or faculty member in the Department of Biomedical Data Science.
James O. Freedman Presidential Scholars
The James O. Freedman Presidential Scholars Program provides opportunities for junior undergraduate students to work as paid, part-time research assistants with Dartmouth faculty, including those in the Department of Biomedical Data Science. The scholarship program is intended to support research related to a senior honors thesis.
Quantitative Biomedical Sciences
Faculty from the Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (iQBS), in collaboration with the Departments of Biomedical Data Science, Community and Family Medicine, Epidemiology and Genetics and with the School of Graduate Studies at Dartmouth, have established a new graduate program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (QBS). Approved by the Board of Trustees in 2012, the QBS program seeks to train highly qualified quantitative students for productive careers in biomedical research and teaching through the completion of an interdisciplinary Ph.D. degree. The philosophy of QBS is that modern biomedical researchers must be able to speak more than one language to successfully collaborate in a highly multidisciplinary environment. Students trained through QBS will be versed in bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology.
Postdoctoral Training Program for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences in Cancer
The Postdoctoral Training Program for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences in Cancer at Dartmouth is supported by the Cancer Education and Career Development program of the National Cancer Institute. The program is designed to cross-train scientists in the fields of bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology for cancer research in the biomedical sciences. Trainees with doctorates in diverse biomedical sciences will choose a secondary focus area among the three core disciplines and participate in a combination of structured, group learning activities and individually designed mentored research opportunities. Stipends, course tuition and certificates of training are provided.
