SURF: Announcements of Opportunity
Below are Announcements of Opportunity posted by Caltech faculty and JPL technical staff for the SURF program. Additional AOs for the Amgen Scholars program can be found here.
Specific GROWTH projects being offerred for summer 2017 can be found here.
Students pursuing opportunities at JPL must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents.
Each AO indicates whether or not it is open to non-Caltech students. If an AO is NOT open to non-Caltech students, please DO NOT contact the mentor.
Announcements of Opportunity are posted as they are received. Please check back regularly for new AO submissions! Remember: This is just one way that you can go about identifying a suitable project and/or mentor.
Announcements for external summer programs are listed here.
|Project:||Solving big data problems in bioengineering|
|Disciplines:||Computer Science, Data Science|
Assistant Professor , (BBE),
|Mentor URL:||http://glab.caltech.edu/ (opens in new window)|
|Background:||The Gradinaru lab is looking for talented and highly motivated computer science majors to design and implement algorithms for various bioengineering applications. The Gradinaru lab uses advanced technologies such as optogenetics, CLARITY, physiology, imaging, protein engineering, deep sequencing and behavior to understand and develop therapies for neurological diseases.|
|Description:||Example projects include but are not limited to: registration of 3D images, automatic cell counting, sequence alignments and pattern recognition in big data sets and processing real-time calcium imaging data.|
“Required”: Basic knowledge in Algorithm design, strong quantitative and programming skills (e.g. proficient in one or more of: MATLAB, Python and R).
“Preferred”: Background in image processing and/or deep sequencing data analysis, machine learning and deep learning.
