Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research Scientific Summer Internship Program

Below is a great opportunity to perform PAID scientific research during Summer 2012. Good luck! -Minority.Scientist 

Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research
Scientific Summer Internship Program

Application deadline: January 6, 2012 
Program Dates: June 4th - August 10th, 2012

Program Overview   
Imagine performing research at a leading global pharmaceutical corporation while gaining practical experience and contributing to the search for new disease therapies. Through the scientific intern program at the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR), your contribution to the search for new disease therapies can begin before you graduate. Our program is designed to introduce talented students to drug discovery and to train them in experimental work in this area.  NIBR's research covers many disease and technology areas, and allows us to closely match your specific interests with one of our labs.

Applications are currently being accepted for opportunities in Biology, Biochemistry, Biostatistics, Chemistry, and Computer Science.  Our program is a paid, full-time summer internship at our Cambridge, MA research facilities.  Financial support towards housing and travel will be available and based on the Company's non-discriminatory assessment of the applicant's financial need. 

NIBR is committed to providing transformative opportunities to students from unique cultural, socioeconomic and educational backgrounds that will benefit from such an experience. This includes, among others, talented individuals who are currently underserved in the sciences, for example, first generation college students, socioeconomically disadvantaged students, and individuals with learning differences.

2) explore the world of science through the eyes of someone who
pursued a PhD in the biomedical sciences as a single parent.

In the spirit of sharing, if you find info here useful for you or someone you know... pass it on! If you would like to share information, send an email to
