Internship Job Description:
There are two positions available for this internship.
Interns in the Biogen Community Lab in Research Triangle Park, NC will help to transform today’s young students into the discoverers and scientific leaders of tomorrow. The mission of the Community Lab program is to engage young people in science and biotechnology by allowing them to work on real-world problems that Biogen scientists and engineers are working on daily. The Community Lab is essential to Biogen’s overall corporate social responsibility. Caring deeply. Working fearlessly. Changing lives.™ This isn’t just a corporate philosophy, it’s an extension of who Biogen is as a company and how we support the communities where we live and work.
The summer intern’s main responsibility will be to assist with running the summer sessions for hundreds of middle and high school students as well as teachers. This would include testing hands-on labs, providing basic laboratory preparation and clean up, assisting with organizing summer sessions and related paperwork, recruiting and organizing volunteers, as well as providing teaching assistance during the sessions.
Due to the nature of the program, interns will be exposed to the inner workings of North Carolina’s largest biotechnology company. They will intimately understand the drug development process and will learn how to succinctly communicate that process to the public. The Community Lab interns will network with over 50 employee volunteers across various departments.
The deadline to apply for this role is March 15th.
