You just crammed for your last biology final and now you have to apply for a biology internship-that’s not fair!?!? While few students work harder than biology students, there is such a huge range of biology internships available that finding your next biology internship may be more fun than you think.
First you need to determine what type of biology you are interested in? Don’t just look at positions in the field you think you are interested in because one of the most sensible reasons to do an internship is to explore parts of your field of study that you are interested in. Regardless step one is to start narrowing things down, whether that is marine biology, bio-engineering, or pre-med type work.
The next big question is whether you are interested in doing a private sector or research internship. Many biology internships tend to be in labs, either at your school, a big firm like NIH or smaller research facility. These internships tend to be very hands on and benefit from being surrounded by other scientists who are all also pursuing interesting research.
On the other hand private sector biology research leads to some of the most ground-breaking medical and environmental innovations. Private firms tend to pay more, and require more networking and team skills than an average research biology internship.
Both types of positions are great for pre-med students looking to gain a depth of perspective in the field through a unique biology internship experience.
