Student Resources

Research Opportunities for Undergraduates: Math majors are needed for a research-based Undergraduate Participation in Bioinformatics Training (UPBiT) program funded in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF Grant DUE-0926721). Stipends are available for math majors to participate in individualized 3-year training programs starting in the sophomore year. Activities include communication workshops, lab training, research rotations, field trips, conferences, and specialized bioinformatics research projects that will typically involve techniques in discrete math, linear algebra, optimization, probability, and statistics. To apply, please download the application form or contact Dr. Ming-Ying Leung, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Bell Hall 225, at or 747-6836.
