Rosetta Commons Internship

Rosetta Commons is a consortium of researchers who develop software to understand, predict, and design biomolecules including proteins and nucleic acids. The Commons includes over 300 developers from over 40 universities and labs worldwide who contribute and share the Rosetta source code.

Rosetta Commons offers internships in 15 locations. During the program, interns will:

  • Attend one week of Rosetta Code School (June 3 through June 7) where they will learn the inner details of the  Rosetta C++ code and community coding environment, so they are fully prepared for the summer
  • Complete 8 weeks of hands-on research in a molecular modeling and design laboratory, developing new algorithms and discovering new science
  • Train in biomolecular structure prediction, optimization, object oriented programming, parallel computing, databases, machine-learning, and collaborative coding
  • Engage in weekly virtual journal clubs, writing and presentation training, and an on-site partnership with a local RUE cohort
  • Finish the REU by attending the Rosetta Developers Conference in Seattle, WA

This program is supported by the National Science Foundation. Interns will receive housing, paid travel expenses, and a $5,500 stipend.

For more information about the program, eligibility, and application, view the flyer or their website.

The application opens November 10, 2018 and closes February 1, 2018.
