Even more students from India wanting internships

A few weeks ago I posted some interesting requests to work in my lab (home office really). Still the requests keep coming. It seems such a shame that I keep them for my own inbox and instead I have decided to de-identify them and share them because someone might have an opportunity for the students (if so please just comment and I will connect you).

Dear Prof. Ekins,

I am a 4th year undergraduate student pursuing my Integrated Master’s
Degree in Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the Indian
Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. I am writing to express my
interest in joining your prestigious research-group for internship
during summers (May�4 to July�4) to utilize my skills and gain some
valuable experience in my field of interest.
Recently I came across your paper ” Fusing dual-event data sets for mycobacterium tuberculosis machine learning models and their evaluation “and found
it very interesting and informative. With my objective of obtaining a PhD, a research
project under your guidance will be of immense benefit to prepare me
for prolonged research exposure.
I am extremely interested in Machine Learning and Algorithm.
I have included a list of relevant courses I have completed and, so I’ll
be able to match up with the technical requirements of the project.
Apart from the courses i have done, I am open to exploring other challenges
I am proficient in C, C++, and Matlab. This opportunity
would prove to be an unmatchable experience for me because of gaining work experience abroad
and also developing inter-cultural awareness.I believe I would enjoy the
challenge and the opportunity to learn provided by this position.

My CV is attached for your perusal.

Thanking You for your attention and in anticipation of your reply.

Yours Sincerely,

Dear Professor Ekins,

I came to know about you from your research paper  ” Bayesian models for screening and TB Mobile for target inference with Mycobacterium tuberculosis “.

I am a Fourth Year Undergraduate from the Department of Mathematics and
Statistics in the Indian Institute Of Technology, Kanpur currently in my
8th Semester of MSc(Integrated) academic programme. My Cumulative Performance Index after
7 semesters is 8.2/10. Presently, I am studying in the University of Waterloo in the Faculty of Engineering for the Winter’14 term as an exchange student.

I aim to pursue higher studies and research and have a keen interest in Machine Learning and Statistical Inferences. I have already pursued relevant projects in the field the details of which are in my attached Curriculum Vitae.

I was also an Undergraduate Research Student in Kyoto University where I worked on developing a robust algorithm for reading QR codes using Statistical Inferences.I have also done some relevant courses like Machine Learning: Statistical Foundations,Machine Learning(Tools and Techniques),Probability And Statistics, Stochastic Processes, Artificial Intelligence, Time-Series Analysis, Statistical Learning:Function Estimation and Natural Language Processing.

While browsing, I was intrigued by your work and found that my interests were in line with the research work that you do.I would be really glad if I could get an opportunity to do a research project under your guidance  or would be glad even if we could assist in any ongoing project from May’14 to July’14(for a 12 week period).

I would love to build on these works and I look forward to cultivate something striking out of my acquaintance with these concepts by doing some research work so that I can broaden my horizons and which will help me to be in good stead to pursue higher studies.

I would be grateful if you could please consider my application. I have
attached my CV along with for your perusal.

Thanking you.

With best regards,
