Funding provided by the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) allows the Center for Systems Biology to provide highly motivated undergraduate students internship opportunities in several Faculty groups.
We are seeking, above all, enthusiasm and passion for science: for learning, for questioning, and for contributing to science and research. We are seeking interns with an interest in biology, as well as engineering/math - systems biology by definition is interdisciplinary. We are seeking interns with experience in, or passion about, education.
Interns are volunteers. We will work with your program/department to attempt to get you college/university credit for your summer internship at ISB.
The intern program includes a mentored research project, a week of lab training, weekly seminar series, group intern working group exercises and a final ISB poster session.
We are not able to provide Visas, housing or travel to Seattle for undergraduate internships.
Intern program dates are Monday June 4 to Friday August 24, 2012.
Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to apply.
The undergraduate intern process is competitive. Interns are selected by (in no order) - mix of your classes and your course load, grades, extra-curricular and volunteer activities, work experience, previous lab experience, written responses on the application, and your work and/or personal references.
Your application will be reviewed by the Faculty and/or project mentors and you will be contacted for further screening.
