Seeking Applicants for Visiting Scientist Program at the Center for Cell Circuits

The Center for Cell Circuits is seeking applicants for our 2016 Summer Visiting Scientist Program at the Broad Institute. In our four-week program, researchers from outside institutions work alongside a Center scientist to learn an experimental or computational technique that will benefit their own research project.

Featured Lab Technologies: Featured Computational Technologies:
· Single-cell genomics · RNA-seq assembly and alignment
· CRISPR-based approaches · Circuit reconstruction models
· Epigenomics · Integrative data analysis
· Proteomics · GenePattern genomic analysis platform
· Library construction for RNA-seq  

There is no registration cost, and travel grants and housing accommodations are provided to all those selected to participate. The program is open to applicants who are currently studying or working in the United States.

Intersted researches must submit:
1) a one-page proposal describing relevance of the method to their current scientific work, and
2) two letters of recommendation, one being from their current advisor or supervisor.

Application timeline for 2016 Summer Program:
Applications for the 2016 summer program are due Friday, June 3, 2016. Applicants who are selected to participate will be informed by Friday, July 1, 2016.  Visits will begin on July 25, 2016 and conclude on August 19, 2016. 

Prerequisites:
For those wishing to train on an experimental technique: 1 year or more (preferably 2+) in wet lab molecular biology techniques.
For those wishing to train on a computational technique: 1 year or more practical experience in programming languages and/or analytical programs (e.g. MATLAB, R, Python). 

Application proposal and letters of recommendation should be emailed to ccc-vp@broadinstitute.org
