biology internships summer 2022
Yale Summer Internship Program
The Yale Summer Internship Program is a summer research program for students in the biomedical sciences. Students will be paired with faculty members who have specific research projects and will work closely with their mentor to learn about all aspects of conducting scientific research.
Students must secure their own housing and transportation, but the program does provide a stipend of $2,000 per week for 8 weeks as well as full tuition reimbursement for courses taken during the summer. The program gives students an opportunity to explore potential careers in science by exposing them to different lab environments and innovative scientific techniques.
The University of Pittsburgh’s Summer Internship Program (SIP) offers undergraduate students an opportunity to engage in hands-on learning experiences focused on topics related to cancer biology, cardiovascular disease or neuroscience research through both classroom-based instruction and laboratory rotations within our various departments on campus.
Argonne National Laboratory Biochemistry Internship
- Start Date: June 17, 2022
- End Date: August 31, 2022
- Location: Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois
- You will learn about the field of biochemistry through your participation in a research project. The project will be conducted by a scientist and may involve conducting experiments with various bio-related equipment such as spectrometers or PCR machines. You will also get to create presentations based on your findings.
- To apply for this internship, you must be at least 18 years old and eligible for college credit (you can find out if you qualify by checking with an admissions advisor). In addition to completing your application online, you must submit three letters of recommendation from science professors or teachers whom you have worked with during high school or college studies (at least one letter must come from someone who taught you chemistry). If applicable, include transcripts showing proof of completion/excellence in chemistry courses taken at either the high school or university level; transcripts should indicate course titles as well as grade point average received in those courses. Letters should include writer’s name and title along with any previous position held within the chemistry department—this information may help inform which type of internship would best suit their needs! Finally: please make sure all required documents are uploaded before submitting!
Huntsman Cancer Institute Summer Research Training Program
The Huntsman Cancer Institute Summer Research Training Program provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in research laboratories, participate in seminars and workshops, meet other students from around the nation and learn more about careers in biomedical research.
The program offers a stipend of $4,000 for 10 weeks to support housing expenses during the summer training period. Students may receive additional funds through their home state’s grant program (i.e., NIH or HRSA). Students interested in participating should apply directly to the HCI Program Office by submitting their CV/resume, statement of purpose and contact information for three references. Applications are due by March 31st each year via email at [email protected]
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Internships are available in a variety of areas, including engineering, applied physics and chemistry. Interns are expected to work at least 20 hours per week for 9 weeks (or less if you take classes during the summer). You can also choose to do your internship year-round as a full-time employee.
Internships are available at the lab’s location in Livermore or at other sites across the country and world, such as Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
All interns receive competitive wages based on their academic status and experience level; that said, most internships pay around $17-$20/hour for college students with no prior experience. Those with more expertise could earn rates up to $35/hour or above!
National Institutes of Health (NIH) Biotechnology Training Program
The [national institutes of health (NIH) biotechnology training program](https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=286970#tab1) offers mentorship and training to graduate and undergraduate students in biomedical research, with the goal of advancing student’s careers in science or industry. Students will conduct hands-on research at the forefront of biotechnology, gaining valuable experience with cutting-edge technologies under the supervision of NIH staff scientists. In addition to conducting research, participating students will have opportunities to meet with local professionals from industry who are interested in hiring trained scientists and engineers who can bring new ideas into their organizations
Roche Innovation Center Zurich Internship (Roche)
- Roche is a leading global biotechnology company. They are a global pioneer in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics, with a focus on gastrointestinal diseases, oncology, immunology, infectious diseases and vaccines.
- Roche is the world’s largest biotech company. In 2014, it generated CHF 29 billion (USD 29.4 billion) in sales for the sixth consecutive year – making it one of Switzerland’s top 10 exporters.
- Founded in 1896 as “Roche Farbwerke vormals Fehling & Co”, Roche has been headquartered in Basel since 1900. The firm operates two sites there: the Basel headquarters and an R&D site in Birsfelden where among other things research is conducted into new drugs for cancer treatment that might also be effective against malaria or HIV/AIDS
University of Oregon School of Medicine Portland Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship
The University of Oregon School of Medicine Portland Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship provides students with an opportunity to explore research at the forefront of health science by working directly with faculty mentors and professional staff on mentor-guided research projects. Students will have the opportunity to present their work through poster presentations, weekly seminars, and meetings with senior faculty. Students also participate in networking events, tours of the campus and surrounding areas, as well as professional development workshops focused on developing skills needed for graduate school or career opportunities after graduation.
