Summer Internships

2015 Summer Internship Program Details

Summer Student Research Awards are three-month paid summer internships designed to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical and occupational health research.

The Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences provides unique research opportunities across a range of basic and applied research areas. Whether studying molecules, cells, organ systems, non-human organisms, or out gathering data in the community, student award winners will gain valuable experience conducting a specific project aligned with their host faculty member’s research program. Read about the 2014 projects for examples of past student research topics.

Student interns are required to present their findings in a scientific poster session in August. Top posters are recognized with awards. Families and friends are welcome to come see your work!

Have more questions? Visit the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences' Students Research Awards Frequently Asked Questions page.

The deadline for the 2015 Student Award Applications has passed and the 2015 applications are being reviewed.

Please check back next year for the 2016 awards.
