Undergrad News and Announcements

Dear University Partners,


Happy New Year! Thanks to everyone who encouraged students to apply to the LifeSci NYC Internship Program by our December early deadline. We are thrilled with the many strong applicants who have come our way. We are still accepting applicants, so please continue to urge students to apply HERE. Our application will be open through March 31, 2020. Students are encouraged to apply sooner rather than later, as the earlier they apply, the more job listings they will have the opportunity to apply for. Keep in mind that we are open to undergraduates as well as graduate students through PhDs and Postdocs.


We currently have 38 different paid summer internship roles listed, and host companies continue to post additional opportunities on an ongoing basis. Roles are currently listed in a wide variety of specialties including laboratory R&D (in areas such as cell biology, bioinformatics, and chemical engineering), business development, marketing, consulting, computer science, data science, investor relations, and more. (Please see a sampling below.)


Further program information is available on our website. In addition, please feel free to post and distribute our student flyer (attached). I hope you won’t hesitate to reach out at any time with questions or feedback. Many thanks for your ongoing support.


Best regards,
