Remote Summer Internships for Undergrads in Biology

Click Here to Learn More and Apply! 

Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

You'll join a lab in the NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology or the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School. Over the summer, you'll work with Harvard researchers on a novel project in systems biology, biophysics, bioinformatics, genomics, applied math, and/or computation. You'll also have opportunities to participate in seminars, journal clubs, and workshops with your fellow interns and with other members of our amazing community. Interns are paid $5000.

Last year, we conducted our immersive research program in an entirely remote fashion and still had a blast. This year, we expect to do the same. Research projects will use computational approaches to address questions in biology. Experience in computation is not required, you will be taught the skills needed for your project during the internship.
