Laboratory Training Programme: Undergraduate Summer Session

2015 Call

The Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) announces up to 10 vacancies for undergraduate students to work in a lab at the CNIO over the summer.

The programme runs from June 22 to August 14, 2015, and is open to undergraduate students of any nationality who have passed at least 2/3 of the total credit points (courses or exams) required for a Life Sciences or Biomedicine-related undergraduate degree (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. In addition, students without public health assistance benefits in Spain will be covered with a private health insurance provided by the CNIO for the same period of time (8 weeks).

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 at the end of the programme.

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

Deadline for applications: 26 April 2015.
