Internships

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC)

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) is excited to announce the launch of the next round of our Internship Challenge! This year-round workforce development program focuses on enhancing the talent pipeline for Massachusetts life sciences companies by providing college students and recent graduates with hands-on work experience through internship opportunities at life sciences companies. The program creates hundreds of new internships each year by enabling small companies to hire paid interns. Since 2009, the MLSC has facilitated the placement of over 3,300 internships at more than 680 companies across the Commonwealth!

We kindly request that you and your institution assist us in notifying students about this opportunity.

This year, the program will offer paid internships to more than 500 college students and recent graduates who are considering career opportunities in the life sciences. Host companies will commit to providing a dedicated mentor and meaningful internship opportunity that relates to the academic focus of students. Studies have shown the value and necessity of providing students with paid internships, and we hope that this opportunity to explore a career path in life sciences will enhance the students' academic training.
We accept applications from eligible students via our website year-round, but the new application for internships taking place this summer is now open. There is no application deadline but students are urged to apply between February and April for increased opportunity to secure a summer placement.
Companies that register with us to host interns are given access to review applications and are instructed to contact students directly for interviews. The MLSC is offering to reimburse companies (with 100 or fewer employees in MA) for intern stipends of up to $8,160 for students selected through the program (amount is based on a pay rate of $17/hour for 12 weeks).

Any student enrolled in a Massachusetts college or university is eligible to apply, provided that they meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • 2-year/Community College/Certificate students must be enrolled in an Associate's Degree or Certificate program or have completed one within the past year.
  • 4-year college or university students must have or will complete(d) at least their freshman year the semester before the internship, or have graduated within the past year.
  • Graduate students must be enrolled in a Master's Degree program or have received their Master's Degree within the past year. Other advanced degree candidates are not eligible

The National Cancer Institute

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is the Federal Government's principal agency for cancer research and training and is the largest of the 27 institutes and centers comprising the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NCI recognizes that health information dissemination is key to raising public awareness about scientific insights underlying cancer research, new cancer treatments, support for cancer patients and their families, and prevention strategies. To that end, in 1975 the NCI established the Health Communications Internship Program (HCIP) to attract individuals interested in careers in health communications and science writing.

The HCIP gives highly qualified graduate students and recent graduate degree recipients the opportunity to participate in vital health and science communications projects at NCI. Interns are placed in host offices at one of the three NCI campuses in Maryland.

Additional information about this program, including an online application can be found by visiting https://hcip.nci.nih.gov/.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at HCIP-Contact@mail.nih.gov. If you are no longer the contact person for this program at your university/organization, please let us know and provide updated information.

Thank you for your support of the NCI Health Communications Internship Program!
