Co-op/Internships and Summer Research Opportunities in the Life Sciences
Lists also include Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) opportunities in Biological Sciences, Earth Sciences, Ocean Sciences, & Chemistry (where applicable). All opportunities listed are PAID, unless otherwise indicated. This information was collected by Professor Tom Frederick.
In addition to the valuable experience and good pay that a Co-op or Internship will give you, many of the opportunities also provide Travel Reimbursement, Housing and Meals. So, don't let concerns about living expenses or the location of an organization posted on this website prevent you from checking out an exciting and challenging Co-op or Internship position!! If travel support, housing and meals are provided, this information will almost always be included in the details about the Co-op or Internship that can be found by clicking on the co-op website next to the organization's name and location.
Note that many organizations do NOT use the term "Co-op", but DO use the terms "Internship", or "Summer Undergraduate Research" or "Student Research" (or other similar "research" descriptions) to mean the same as "Co-op". MOST of the Co-ops, Internships, and the various Research Positions included in this website are Paid, Full-time, Short-term (10-20 weeks) opportunities in positions directly related to Biology & Biotechnology. Thus, even if you participate in an "internship" or "research" position, you can still call it "Co-op".
