SCGPM is looking for motivated and talented student interns.

The Stanford Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine (SCGPM) is dedicated to applying its expertise in the science and ethics of genomics to build a new collaborative model of science focused on transforming the practice of medicine. This new paradigm of patient-centered medicine gives doctors the ability to monitor the entire biological profile of individuals, vastly improving disease prediction and prevention, and the treatment of conditions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, schizophrenia, and many others.

The SCGPM is seeking student interns interested in working in the following research areas:

  • Pervasive Computing in Healthcare
    • Mobile programming (iOS/Android development)
    • Wearables data 
  • Scalability of Large-scale Multi-omics Applications
    • HPC programming (MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, MapReduce)
    • Cloud infrastructures (AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure) 
    • Large-scale computing frameworks (Apache Spark)
  • Large-scale Security and Privacy
    • Vulnerability management and security configuration management experience
    • Anonymized genetic data sharing
  • Management of Big Data Repositories
    • Data reproducibility and provenance
    • Efficient storage management (e.g., compression algorithms)
    • Database management systems (e.g., NoSQL and graph databases)
  • AI/ML in Biology and Healthcare
    • Deep learning paradigms (PyTorch, TensorFlow, Keras)
    • Data mining techniques (supervised and unsupervised learning)
    • Scientific AI for computational sciences, especially for computational biology
  • Performance Engineering for Cost-sensitive Applications
    • Profiling tools (Intel VTune, Caliper, HPC toolkit, Likwid)
    • Auto-tuning technologies (source code-based/compiler-based auto-tuner)
    • Machine learning compilers and novel compilation/runtime techniques
    • Binary-based link-time optimizations
    • Performance modeling techniques
    • Domain-specific languages (e.g., Julia)

Our center is prepared to hire strong candidates who want to hone in their skills in a stimulating collaborative environment while contributing to cutting-edge health care projects. Interns will work with the SCGPM team for up to 3 months and be paid a stipend.

If you have experience in any of the above areas + coding proficiency in Python, Java, C/C++, Bash, SQL , R, Swift, or some other high-level programming language, please send an email to <> by February 29, 2020 with the subject "Internship Program: YOUR_NAME" and attach your resume/CV and cover letter (focus on why you want to use your skills to do biomedical research).

We look forward to hearing from you!
