I’m planning to apply for an internship. The professor represents the school who asked me to submit some necessary documents. He wanted me write a detailed paper about my interested topic project and then he will choose the host supervisor for me. Before that i checked the list professor of this school and i hv noticed a professor which his main project is about “antimicrobial” and i want to work with, but I worried that this year would he accept student? Ok, get back to the paper about the topic: i just know what my favorite area is microbiology-“antimicrobial” but i not yet find out details the projects what i will do. And i don’t know how to write this type of paper, did he want me to write detail the proposal or something??? So what I should do? Beside that please give me some idea to write…
P/s: From a country not fluently english, sorry for my bad english, i tried my best. :(((

I’m an undergraduate(soon to be junior) in Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur(IITK).I plan on applying for USEQIP next year(i.e. December 2018). I wanted to know what could be the best way to prepare, which benefits my eventual research(in case I plan to do so) too.(I’m writing in detail so that it could be helpful for others with similar goals)

For now I have this in mind:

  1. I have read portions from ‘Mike and Ike’(fundamentals and quantum computation.)
  2. I’m reading Robert Spalek’s phd thesis. And will be working with a prof(from my univ.) from August-to-November.
  3. For motivation(and fun) Scott Aaronson’s blog.
  4. Now should I be reading the research papers of professors(with whom I’d like to work)?
  5. I’m already familiar with major concepts in quantum computation(atleast at a higher level.), algorithms/automata/complexity etc.(Resource for complexity)/math for tcs(abstract algebra/linear algebra/graph theory/combinatorics).

I’ve done a lot of DIY projects over the years , ranging from electric arc speakers to Air quality & Climate control systems. Most of my projects involved Arduinos.

My qustion is , I’ve been thinking of conducting a 5 year study on Air quality & climate change using 10 arduino sensors (gas , dust , temp&humidity) and an arduino , I will collect data for 5 years and then conclude my findings ???

1) Can i publish such research anywhere ? 2) Do these type of projects have any value or are they a waste of time ? 3) What are other better ways to utilize the 2 month semester breaks during first year of a UG physics program ?

(I’m 17 and will be joining a UG physics program soon)

I am a PhD student in Australia in robotics and computer vision area.
Before I started PhD, I had worked in a robotics related industry for about 3.5 years as a researcher position.

Now, I am thinking about having a job in the US after I graduate. Although my PhD course is research oriented, it is only funded for 3 years. So, the given time is already not enough to graduate with satisfactory result.

Would you say that it is still better to have an internship in my circumstance?

A Professor recently accepted to supervise me in summer in Europe, although, he said that I need to find a fellowship and he will help to apply for that but unfortunately I was not able to find any such program that supports me for 2 month internship program.

I was wondering to know if there is any fellowship or scholarship for internship programs for an international student and if there is any, please introduce me some of fellowships or scholarships that I, as an international student (Asian) can apply for them to participate in summer internship with the professor.

Thanks.

EDIT: I added the country I will have the internship: Spain.

P.S. If the question is not clear, please help me to make it more clear.

I am a 1st year undergraduate student in a life sciences program in Canada. I have recently joined a lab and I feel very out of place. The lab does biochemistry and I am more interested in physiology. I am supposed to be helping out in research this summer but no-one in the lab helps me do anything. I only refill pipettes tips and occasionally make mixtures.

I was considering doing research for a living but this is killing most of my passion. I feel like my brain power is so underutilized and I hate it. I am starting to email other professors right now but I don’t really know how to proceed.

I really don’t want to lose research, as I began renting a place in my area for the summer for the sole purpose of working on research. Can someone give me any advice please?

Let’s say the professor had a lecture abroad and met a very keen and promising student there. He agreed on giving him a position as a student intern in his research at a university laboratory. It is completely outside of any publicly open positions but the prof seems to be very impressed by the student’s smart questions and interest. However, apparently, it’s the university who has the final say whether they will officially invite him or not. The university is Japanese. What are the factors upon which they make the decision? And what are the odds they will agree to that?
I am sorry if this question is off. It’s torturous not to know if there is any hope or not.

For a math student, does an industrial internship, where you use the applications of the mathematics you learned in courses, give a better preparation for a PhD in Applied Math, or taking more advanced courses? How about taking courses on other topics (not math), which are skill-based or otherwise practical with a lot of applications in applied math, such as high-performance computing, statistical learning, numerical modeling, etc.?
