Description: 

Founded in 1887 by Louis Pasteur and located in the heart of Paris, the Institut Pasteur is one of the world's leading biomedical research organizations. With more than 130 laboratories and 2,500 people on campus, it is a vibrant, international community devoted to basic scientific research primarily in the area of infectious disease. The Pasteur Foundation of New York has created a program for U.S. undergraduates to conduct summer internships at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. The goal of this program is to encourage American students in the pursuit of a scientific career and to expose students to an international laboratory experience. Specific scientific fields include: Biochemistry/Structural Biology, Biophysics, Neurology, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Genomics, Immunology, Microbiology and Experimental Medicine. During the 8-week internships (see lab descriptions for precise dates; exact start/end dates will be determined by laboratory head and intern), interns will carry out research supervised by a lab mentor. Applicants should be eager to immerse in a different culture, and self-sufficient enough to arrange travel and secure housing in Paris.
   

Benefits: 

Interns will receive $6,500, which must cover travel, housing and all living expenses.
