Voluntary Internship Programme For Undergraduate Students

It is a known fact that changing conditions due to the pandemic have restricted the ability of gaining practical experience in laboratories, which is highly significant for the education of undergraduate students. As IBG, we provide the opportunity for undergraduate students in their 3rd years and above, registered under relevant programmes, to do voluntary internships in IBG laboratories to gain practical laboratory experience. We invite students willing to do a 4-month voluntary internship in the laboratories of Izmir Biomedicine and Genome Center during the 2021 fall semester to have a look at our research programmes and make an application, after contacting the group leader of the laboratory they would like to do an internship in.

Who can apply?

Those undergraduate students:

*Includes universities which have signed bilateral agreements with IBG (Dokuz Eylül University and Ege University) or institutions which accept to pay the internship insurance of the student for the duration of the internship.

How to apply?

The candidate should identify the research group or platform they would like to do their internship in, and should apply directly by emailing the research group leader or platform director (you may access the current research topics of the groups and platforms as well as the relevant email addresses form the following link: https://www.ibg.edu.tr/research/ ). In the application email, they should state their work motivation and reasons for the chosen internship group, and they should attach their CV and transcript to the email.

Important note:
