One of my students in the Computational Biology program here at Carnegie
Mellon, Andrea Dent, is seeking summer employment in the general area of
computational Biology in a research group in the Boston area. As you can
see from the enclosed resume, Andrea works at the Pittsburgh
Supercomputer Center during the academic year, and has experience with a
variety of systems. She is a strong student both in biology and
computation who I believe has great potential to make a significant
contribution in this growing field.  If you have a position available or
know of a research group which might, please contact me or Andrea. 
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
