Summer Internships at HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville

Posted on January 19, 2018 by

     The HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville will be hosting summer internships for undergraduate and master’s level graduate students again this year. The BioTrain Internship program is in its 10th year of placing students in engaging experiences in the research labs and associated biotech companies and departments on the HudsonAlpha campus. This unique internship program accepts 20-30 interns each summer for a nine-week session that includes a week of Biotech Boot Camp and weekly professional development seminars in addition to eight weeks of employment for students. Interns will be paid a stipend based on their position.

     I would like to encourage you to share this information with all students that you think might be interested in this type of summer program. We have had a tremendously positive response from our past participants and have been thrilled to follow them as they move on to further education and successful careers.

     We are looking for qualified applicants with all levels of experience that are interested in the following areas:

computational informatics
genetics and genomics research
economic development/business
marketing and communications
science education
computer programming
graphic arts
genetic counseling
molecular biology

     In addition to traditional wet bench lab work, many of the research labs at HudsonAlpha focus on using sequence data to gain insight into disease and learn more about the world around us. For that reason, several of the intern positions will involve computer programming and informatics work with databases. Students with experience and interest in these areas are encouraged to apply. Our researchers have said that they particularly need people with experience and education in programming, basic biology, and math/statistics.

     Students who attend a college or university in the state of Alabama or have a permanent address in Alabama are eligible to apply. Online applications will be open January 15-February 15, 2018.

     Students will need a resume, a personal statement and two letters of recommendation. The 2018 BioTrain Internship will be held May 29-July 27th.
