Laboratory Training Programme: Undergraduate Summer Session

2014 Call

The Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) announces up to 12 vacancies for undergraduate students to work in a lab at the CNIO over the summer.

The programme runs from June 23 to August 14, 2014, and is open to undergraduate students of any nationality who are in their final two years of studies in the Life Sciences or related subjects (e.g. Biology, Biomedicine, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Bioinformatics). Travel expenses and meals at the CNIO cafeteria will be covered for summer training programme students during their stay at the centre.

Each student will be matched with a specific laboratory based on the student’s interest and background. The student will be working under the supervision of the group/unit leader or a member of the research group. The participants will attend a series of seminars given by faculty members and researchers from the CNIO. Students will be required to present the results of their summer projects in a special session to be held at the end of the programme.

Fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis taking into consideration the student’s academic record and their letter of motivation.

Deadline for applications: 27 April 2014
