In your answers below, we would especially like evidence of the following:
- You are a good programmer, and competent in a Unix command-line environment.
- You have been exposed to basic probability and statistics.
- You have other potentially useful background knowledge (e.g., linguistics, speech communication, machine vision, natural language processing, cognitive science, machine learning, signal processing, applied math such as linear algebra and optimization, data structures and algorithms, parallel computing, advanced prob/stats, foreign languages). Background in these areas is not a prerequisite, but the workshop team leaders may consider it in making their final selection.
|Please give a short statement describing any relevant skills you may possess, including programming languages, foreign languages and theoretical background in math/stats/CS/linguistics.|
|IMPORTANT: Please describe (approx. 200 words) a project you have undertaken which best highlights your PROGRAMMING skills. First briefly describe the overall goal of the project and the components you were responsible for programming. Then describe in some detail the programming techniques and algorithms you used.|
Prior Research Experience
|Past research experience is not required. However, if you have had research experience that went beyond well-defined homework assignments, please write a few sentences about the one or two projects that you would most like us to know about.|
|Please describe your interest in this program, including your science and research background, your academic accomplishments, and how they prepared you or piqued your interest.(1000 word maximum)|
|Please note any ACTIVE Summer Stipend Support (e.g. MARC/MBRS)|
|Please list up to three CMDB program faculty members whose research is of interest:|
For a list of our faculty members, please visit http://cmdb.jhu.edu/ProgramFaculty.aspx
|Please indicate up to three areas of scientific interest (e.g. developmental biology):|
|If you are currently planning to pursue a research career as a Ph.D or M.D./Ph.D., what do you find attractive about doing research? Why have you chosen it as a career path? (1000 word maximum)|
|Please provide any additional information that you believe is relevant to your application. This could include previous experiences, prior military service, or unusual challenges you have faced (socioeconomic, first generation college student, disabilities).|
