2013 Summer Internship

iDASH is pleased to announce the availability of summer research internships for undergraduates, graduate students, and postgraduates.

Program Structure

Each intern is paired with one primary mentor and, in some cases, secondary mentors. Interns may work independently or on small teams for their projects. Interns are generally expected to reside in San Diego during the internship, and are required to attend a kickoff meeting at the beginning of the program* and a capstone meeting at the end of the program to present the results of their work. During the internship period, iDASH will host weekly lunch seminars to be attended by all interns and the program leaders. Interns are also expected to schedule regular 1:1 meetings with their mentor(s) throughout the internship period. Monthly social activities will also be hosted for interns – in summers past, this included potluck lunches, day hikes, and a surfing session.
