Student background and qualifications
CoSIBS seeks advanced undergraduate (beyond second year) students or early-stage graduate (first 2 years) students who have interest in the application of statistics and mathematics in biomedical research. Students should have undergraduate mathematics coursework including calculus. Introductory coursework in statistics or probability is useful but not required. We specifically encourage applications from under-represented student populations. Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
