As such, this internship is open to candidates from chemistry, biology, engineering, material science, or related backgrounds, and the exact responsibilities may vary depending on a candidate’s particular strengths.

Minimum Qualifications

- Enrollment in an accredited bachelors or advanced degree program

- At least 1 semester/quarter of classwork to complete after the internship (may also be starting an advanced degree program)

- Minimum age of 18

- Course and lab work in organic chemistry or molecular biology
