Education

Seasoned scientists and those wanting to become scientists commit to a lifetime of learning. Always aiming to enhance their understanding of the world, scientists engage in a number of educational endeavors, such as internships, throughout their careers. Texas Biomed is committed to supporting those interested in pursuing a career in science by offering a variety of internships.

College-level Internships

Texas Biomed offers year-round, paid internship opportunities for a limited number of undergraduate and graduate students in the Spring, Summer and Fall semesters.

These internships can be in the lab or in our administrative departments, such as Finance, Communications, Research Support Services, etc. Not every department offers an internship every semester. We will contact individuals interested on a case by case basis.

Spring and Fall internships are on a rolling basis, while our summer science program has set start and end dates. Applications for Spring and Fall can be submitted here at any time. A representative will reach out to applicants within 30 days of applying for more information.

Undergraduate students (entering Sophomore, Junior or Senior levels) and graduate (Ph.D. and Veterinary) students currently enrolled at accredited academic institutions are welcome to apply.

We do not offer high school internships at this time.
