Data Analytics Summer Intern with Locus Analytics

Are you interested in data analytics and up for a REALLY INTERACTIVE and dynamic summer internship in NYC? Then consider this highly competitive opportunity with Midd alumnus Rory Riggs ’75, who created and runs Locus Analytics. We’d love to see a Middlebury student there this summer!

Locus Analytics, a research firm in New York City, studies the network of relationships within the global economy. Locus has developed methods incorporating linguistics, complex systems, and graph theory for analyzing large, unstructured datasets. This methodology is used to model economic interactions at all scales, from small informal enterprises to major technology conglomerates. We have used our proprietary classification system to construct a database that indexes thousands of companies worldwide.

Interns collaborate in small teams, each tasked with projects and assigned a mentor from the Locus team. In previous summers, interns have pursued a wide variety of projects and questions designed around their skill sets. These have included creating standardized profiles of zip codes based on their makeup of economic functions and census data, developing data visualization prototyping tools, and clustering and classification machine learning projects. This is a unique opportunity to help build a project from the beginning — each team is entrusted with planning and executing its own end­-to-­end project strategy from design and implementation to testing and presentation. As a part of this team, you will have the chance to experience what it is like to completely ideate and realize a project and it’s goals and will be a valued and trusted member of our team.

Minimum Requirements

    • Strong quantitative skills
    • Strong ability in at least one general purpose programming language (e.g. Python, C++, Java, etc.)
    • Excellent problem-solving skills
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills – ability to communicate technical concepts to non-technical audiences
Locus will cover all visa expenses for international students.
The internship will last approximately 10 weeks beginning in mid-June.
Please direct any questions to apply@locus.co.

Research assistant openings in the Zon Lab, Boston/Cambridge MA

Work as a Research Assistant with Dr. Leonard Zon, Grousbeck Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, HHMI Investigator, and HSCI Faculty Member.

The lab utilizes the zebrafish model system and cutting-edge technologies to study the role of gene expression in hematopoiesis, cancer, and stem cell development. They aspire to develop and improve drug therapies and treatments for patients with blood disorders and cancer. The lab is based in two locations: Longwood Medical Area (Boston) and Harvard University (Cambridge).

They carry out research in two areas of biology:

  • Hematopoiesis: Each day, humans require the production of ~100 billion new blood cells for proper hematopoietic function. Assaults to this system can cause diseases including leukemias, lymphomas, and anemias. They study how hematopoietic progenitor cells are induced from vascular precursors, how hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) engraft
    into their stem cell niche, what genes controls stem cell self-renewal and differentiation, what goes awry in blood cancers & diseases, and how to improve treatments such as bone marrow transplants.
  • Melanoma: The Zon Lab created the first animal model of a BRAFdriven cancer in 2005 with the publication of our zebrafish melanoma model. The lab has gone on to identify genes important in melanoma initiation such as SPRED1 and SETDB1. They study epigenetic regulators of melanoma onset, molecular events in melanoma initiation, and mechanisms of melanoma drug resistance

Positions available:

  • Research Assistants: They are looking for multiple candidates with strong biology backgrounds. Research assistants will utilize a variety of molecular biology techniques, microinjections, microscopy, and tissue culture in addition to working with zebrafish.
  • Bioinformatics Specialist: The last three bioinformatics specialists in their lab have been premedical students with a computer science focus. The individual will work on widely applicable computational analyses on the data from lab experiments and will learn to create novel analysis pipelines to handle more complex biological questions.

Qualities they are looking for: Highly motivated, intellectually curious, strong organizational skills, and an ability to work independently.

Benefits to you: Many recent college graduates spend time as Zon Lab research assistants prior to successfully moving on to positions in medical school, graduate school and other health professions. You will learn how to design and execute state-of-the-art experiments, providing an excellent opportunity to grow creatively as a scientist and to think critically about how the lab translates to the clinic. Research assistants regularly give presentations and are authors on primary research papers, providing a competitive edge when applying to graduate and medical programs.

Email your cover letter & CV to Dr. Bruce Barut (Lab Manager).
Positions are competitive and require a two-year commitment beginning summer 2019

NIST 2019 SURF Program Competition

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program Competition

The SURF Program is designed to inspire undergraduate students to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) through a unique research experience that supports the NIST mission. Since 1993, SURF students from across the country have had the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience, working with cutting edge technology in one of the world’s leading research organizations and home to three Nobel Prize winners.

Over the course of 11 weeks, SURF students contribute to the ongoing research of one of the six NIST facilities which are the Communications Technology Laboratory (CTL), Engineering Laboratory (EL), Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), Material Measurement Laboratory (MML), NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR), and Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML) (which now includes project in the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology). The SURF Program is administered at the Boulder, CO and Gaithersburg, MD locations.

Applications are required to be submitted through USAJOBS.

Note:  Only U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents are eligible to participate in the SURF Program.

The application process has changed. Students can now apply to the 2019 program  without the assistance of their universities.

Potential applicants are also invited to participate in an upcoming webinar scheduled December 19, 2018 or January 10, 2019. Please select the a date for registration information. 

December 19, 2018 at 1:30 PM-2:30 PM (ET)
