Diversity Summer Internship Program (DSIP) Faculty Information
DSIP 2020 Call for Faculty Mentors, Projects, and Speakers
Faculty support is critical to the success of the Diversity Summer Internship Program. We are currently seeking faculty mentors and projects for the summer of 2020. The program runs May 26 -July 31, 2020. Faculty from across all departments in the Bloomberg School of Public Health are invited to submit proposals, using the Project Proposal Form, now through February 7, 2020. Examples of project duties include:
- Laboratory-based research
- Data collection and/or analysis
- Literature reviews
- Aiding in the development of communications materials
- Community outreach
While exact hours may vary, interns are expected to work 35-40 hours/week on their research project. In addition, interns attend mandatory Monday seminars, complete weekly assignments, draft a research paper, prepare and execute an oral presentation, and design a research poster. For more information about mentor expectations, click here. Interns are funded through various offices, fellowships, and grants.
Guest Speakers Needed
Faculty in the Bloomberg School of Public Health are also invited to participate in DSIP by presenting their work during Monday morning hour-long seminars throughout the program beginning the first week of June.
