The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF) was founded in 2000 with a single defined objective: accelerating meaningful therapeutic advances and, ultimately, a cure for Parkinson’s disease (PD). The Foundation provides a distinctive combination of scientific, business, and media assets to this core focus. This triple-pronged, singularly-defined strategy towards disease research enables a dynamic, motivated, and young organization. MJFF has quickly grown into the largest global funder of Parkinson’s disease research outside of the federal government and has funded over $800 million in research projects across academic and industry labs worldwide.
Research Data Science Internship
As a Data Science intern with the Research Partnerships team, you will use data collected from MJFF-sponsored research studies to develop and communicate insights that can shape study operations. You will have the opportunity to work with our population-based cohort studies and apply novel quantitative methods to develop models that explain problems of interest. In particular, you will focus on modeling study data to understand/explain how participants interact with the study and contribute data.
