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 (due to NSF guidelines). 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. The internship also includes a scientific communications workshop, educational seminars and social activities. At the end of the 10-week program, students present their research results to the group. Internships run from the last week of May through the first week of August. Interns that require on-site housing will check into their dorms on Memorial Day, May 25th and check out on Saturday, August 1st.
Our Program Offers:
A $5000 stipend and will cover housing and travel expenses for those in need.
An authentic full-time research experience with hands-on laboratory training.
Seminars on current XFEL-related research and an introductory course on XFELs and Structural Biology.
Professional Development activities, career mentoring and social events.
The chance to network with pioneering researchers in XFEL science.
Additional Salary Information: paid every two weeks
BioXFEL is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation in 2013 of eight U.S. research universities aimed at addressing the fundamental questions in biology at the molecular level.
Utilizing a recently-invented pulsed hard X-ray laser, our researchers can capture biological molecules in atomic detail, view their functional motions by taking brief snapshots, and observe interactions in their native environment. This new technology is certain to open up a new world to biology, to science, and to human health.
