Undergraduate Research in the UT Biomedical Informatics Lab

This project is ongoing.

The mission of the Biomedical Informatics Lab is to design decision support systems for clinical decision making and scientific discovery. We seek opportunities to advance health-related quality of life and health equity.


The only prerequisite for working in the BMIL is programming experience (in any language). Most students are in majors such as BME, ECE, CS, physics, etc., but quantitatively-minded students from majors such as psychology, health & society, public health, etc. are also encouraged to applied.

Note: Inquiries that are not submitted as instructed (http://bmil.bme.utexas.edu/people/prospective-lab-members/) will not be processed.

Project Timeline

There are opportunities every semester. Please review our website for application instructions and deadlines.


A few key points to consider before applying:

(1) All undergraduate research positions in the BMIL are unpaid. An undergraduate researcher can participate in the BMIL either for course credit or as a volunteer.
(2) You must be able to commit to at least 10 hours per week for at least 10 weeks. The majority of your research time will need to be during normal business (i.e., 9-5, M-F).
(3) You will be required to write a paper at the end of the semester

Typical Time Commitment


The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session or advising before contacting faculty members or project contacts about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to get involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit. Once you have attended an Office of Undergraduate Research info session or spoken to an advisor, you can use the "Who to contact" details for this project to get in touch with the project leader and express your interest in getting involved.

Have you tried contacting professors and need more help? Schedule an appointment for additional support.
