Core Summer Internship Program

Applications for Summer 2024 are Closed

Industry-Relevant Training in the UMass Core Facilities

UMass Amherst operates more than 30 core facilities, many of which are housed in the Life Sciences Laboratory (LSL) building which opened in October 2016. Many of these facilities advance the Institute for Applied Life Science’s mission to support high quality research and to enhance human health and well-being. The overall Core Facility infrastructure was made possible by a grant from the Massachusetts Life Science Center.

The CSI Program aims to provide hands-on experiential research & technical training with these facilities to UMass undergraduate students from Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Students will apply to a specific facility of their choosing. Below are the available internship positions for Summer 2024. Internship positions are highly competitive, and we expect a large volume of applicants this cycle. Please click the name of facility for the full job descriptions and to apply. Students may apply to up to three (3) different positions and will be asked to rank order their choices.

Positions are only open to UMass Amherst undergraduate students at this time. Must be a continuing undergraduate student through at least Fall '24 to be eligible.
