The Gap Year Internships are designed for students who anticipate graduating or who have graduated with a Bachelor or Master degree and with the motivation to enroll in graduate and/or professional degree programs within the next 12-18 months, but need time to consider career options.

The Research Internship requires 40 hours/week in the laboratory with compensation of $16/hr. A highly motivated and engaging Research Intern is sought, ideally with prior experience in animal physiology, molecular biology, and biochemistry. The laboratories use state-of-the-art ex vivo vascular function studies, molecular and cellular biology assays, and rat and mouse models to address clinically relevant questions in cardiovascular biology and renal physiology.

The successful research intern will work in a collaborative environment with principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and research associates. The research intern will work closely with a member of this dynamic research group.  Duties may include molecular and cellular assays, rodent husbandry, in vivo rodent physiological measurements such as blood pressure, vascular function assays, genotyping, Western blotting assays, and histological assays.

The position requires:

  • BS, BA, or MS degree in biology, chemistry, or science
  • Excellent writing and communications skills
  • 40 hours/week (irregular status)

Applications (CV and Cover Letter) and questions can be directed to: Rena Becker.
