Internships - Scientific training with real world impact...
Imagine performing research at a leading global pharmaceutical corporation while gaining practical experience and contributing to the search for new disease therapies. Through the scientific intern program at the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR), your contribution to the search for new disease therapies can begin before you graduate. Our program is designed to introduce talented students to drug discovery and to train them in experimental work in this area.
The Basel Traineeship Program is a paid internship with rolling admissions. Placement is in a variety of laboratory settings for 3-12 months. The intern’s research may focus on therapeutic areas, discovery technologies, molecular pathway investigation, discovery chemistry or models.
Along with your resume, please include a cover letter specifying your areas of interest, relevant completed coursework and describe any past research or laboratory experience. Since the Basel program has rolling admissions, we welcome you to come back and check the database periodically if there are currently no openings.
