Description 
-One week of Rosetta Code School, where you will learn the inner details of the Rosetta C++ code and community coding environment, so you are fully prepared for the summer! -8 weeks of hands-on research in a molecular modeling and design laboratory, developing new algorithms and discovering new science. -The summer will finish with a trip to the Rosetta Conference, where you will present your research in a poster and connect with Rosetta developers from around the world. The sponsor, NSF, will provide housing, travel expenses, and a stipend. Possible projects include: • “Design of self-assembling protein nanomaterials: three-dimensional crystals” • “Structural bioinformatics of protein kinases” • “How do post-translational modifications change the communication of a protein with its partners?” • “Glycoengineering for immunotherapy and biofuels” • “Rosetta Computer Aided Drug Design” • “Computational Redesign of UDP-N-acetylhexosamine pyrophosphorylase for bioorthogonal labeling of protein glycosylation” …and many more
Qualifications 
Must be US citizens or permanent residents. -College Sophomores or Juniors preferred. -Major in computer science, engineering, mathematics, chemistry, biology, and/or biophysics. -Available for at least 10 weeks during the summer of 2018. -Interest in graduate school -While not required, we seek candidates with some combination of experiences in scientific or academic research, C++/Python/*nix/databases, software engineering, object-oriented programming, and/or collaborative development.
