Application

The application for the 2017 team is posted here. Please email the completed application form with your CV and an unofficial transcript to ubcigem@gmail.com by January 31st 2017.

We are looking for applicants with different skill sets, meaning that research experience is not the only criteria for selection.  If you possess any skills that you can contribute to next year’s team, please mention them in your application. It’s also a good idea to browse through the previous team wikis, particularly the winners William and MaryHeidelberg and UC Davis; and runners up Czech Republic, BGU IsraelImperialNCTU Formosa and others. 

Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have!
