Internships: Science

During the academic year, most nearby science internships are laboratory-based.  To find on-campus research experiences…

  • Participate in the Maryland Student Researchers Program -- This is especially good for students with little or no previous experience.
  • Contact your professors and PhD-level teaching assistants directly -- If their research interests match yours, send a brief description of your interests, a resume, and your transcript to them by e-mail.
  • Listen for in-class announcements and watch the ENSP Advising News -- and act quickly!
  • Consider science policy, science writing, or other work related to science, as well.

During the spring and summer, check the links below for a wider range of opportunities... and go to Internships: Research for selective research experiences, i.e., prior experience and strong GPA expected.
