Description:
BioXFEL is a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center (STC) that focuses on promoting and advancing the study of Biological molecules using X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs). A summer internship is the best way to get started in this new and exciting field. BioXFEL offers Summer Research Internships to highly qualified undergraduate and post-graduate students with backgrounds in physics, chemistry, biochemistry, mathematics, computer science and all related fields. All applicants should be interested in pursuing a career in research and MUST be US citizens or US Nationals. Women and minorities underrepresented in STEM fields are strongly encouraged to apply.

This is a highly competitive program where students will be given hands-on training in XFEL-related laboratory techniques, professional development events and educational seminars. At the end of the 10 weeks, students present their research results to the group. Internships run from the end of May through the first week of August. Interns that require on-site housing will check into their dorms on Memorial Day and check out in early August.
