Biology Internships

  • The NYU Shanghai Student Research Program in Molecular Science  – 3 to 6 months program with flexible starting dates. During the program, the students will have the opportunity to actively participate in research projects under the mentorship of a professor who is active at the forefront of his or her field of chemistry and biology. Financial support will be provided for eligible students for the duration of the program.
  • National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) – Students participate in an eight-week summer program sponsored by the University of Central Oklahoma and funded by the National Science Foundation. They will study aspects of the foraging ecology of solitary bees and honey bees in their native regions of the world.
  • Auburn University – This REU Site is a novel, collaborative effort involving Auburn University faculty mentors specializing in diverse but complementary disciplines, including community ecology, fisheries management, aquaculture, evolution, limnology, molecular biology, microbiology, invasive species, fish behavior, outreach, physiology, parasitology, and conservation. Together these disciplines provide the education basis for undergraduate students to learn about techniques and tools to study aquatic communities, specifically warm-water systems such as reservoirs, farm ponds, streams, and brackish estuaries. The primary objectives of this project include exposing participants to different scientific hypotheses, research techniques, and ecological habitats and conditions in an engaging, interdisciplinary atmosphere that fosters a strong interest in aquatic sciences by the next generation of water experts.
  • BRITE REU – The BRITE REU at BU Bioinformatics (Bioinformatics Research and Interdisciplinary Training Experience) focuses on computational and mathematical fundamentals of bioinformatics analysis through research projects in a broad range of topics, including gene regulatory networks, metabolic networks, analysis of microbial communities, synthetic biology, enzyme structure and function, machine learning methods for cancer subtype classification, and sequence analysis algorithms for identifying genetic variation.
  • Summer Systematics Institute 2019 – SSI is a nine-week paid research internship at our state-of-the-art research facility and museum in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. This world-renowned venue continues to offer undergraduates important insights into the contributions that museum-based research can make to issues facing society today. The program accommodates up to 10 undergraduate students. This internship is made possible by the National Science Foundation and a generous gift from the Robert T. Wallace Endowment for undergraduate research experiences. One internship in Biological Illustration is integrated with the SSI program.
  • Central Michigan University Great Lakes Research Experiences for Undergraduates – This Central Michigan University Great Lakes Research Experiences for Undergraduates program, funded by the National Science Foundation and the College of Science and Engineering, supports the training of 8 students for 10 weeks during the summers of 2019-2021 (tentative 2019 dates are May 28-August 3).
  • Fort Johnson Summer Undergraduate Research Program – The Fort Johnson Summer Undergraduate Research Program is a ten week internship combining independent research with activities to promote career development and science communication skills. Participants will investigate diverse topics on the health of marine organisms at the individual, population, community, and species levels, using a wide variety of laboratory and field techniques. Up to 10 fellowships are awarded each year through the cooperative efforts of the 5 marine institutions at Fort Johnson and supported by funds from the National Science Foundation and the College of Charleston School of Sciences and Mathematics.
  • Natural History REU – Natural History Research Experiences (NHRE) is a 10-week summer internship program hosted at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. NHRE interns work closely with scientific mentors to complete independent research projects in Earth Science, Biology, and Anthropology.
