The QSURE program is an NCI funded internship (R25 CA214255), designed to provide a hands-on research experience to undergraduates with an aptitude for and interest in quantitative sciences in cancer. Students will participate in an individual research project and receive exposure to methods in biostatistics, epidemiology and health outcomes research. Through the program, students will advance their quantitative skills and knowledge, as well as their understanding of options for graduate study and careers in these areas. Student research projects will be individualized and will address topics such as survival analysis, prediction modeling, cancer epidemiology, genetics and genomics, quality measurement, and disparities in cancer care and outcomes.
Candidates must have completed at least one academic year of college, one college level statistics course (AP statistics does not count), and must also be enrolled as full-time undergraduate student. Competitive applicants must have a keen interest in cancer and population health, demonstrated aptitude in data analysis, and excellent oral and written communication skills. The program provides a modest stipend for the 10-week summer internship at the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, located in midtown Manhattan. Students are responsible for their own housing, but QSURE will provide a nominal reimbursement for housing expenses. Applicants must also be authorized to work in the US.
