Summer Emory Science Internships

  • The Atlanta Sickle Cell Summer Research Program is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and conducted by Morehouse School of Medicine, Emory University Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplantation, and Georgia Institute of Technology. For more information, see the attached flyer and link to the website at: http://www.msm.edu/Education/PipelinePrograms/SickleCell.php. The application link will be accessible beginning next week 2/1/17, and application will be accepted until 3/31/17.
  • The Division of Animal Resources (DAR) of the School of Medicine of Emory University in partnership with Druid Hills High School brings forward a twelve-week, half-time paid summer employment opportunity. We are looking for highly motivated high school students who will be seniors in the autumn of 2017 and are interested in pursuing a career after graduation from high school in the care of laboratory animals. This experience is a gateway for a future permanent hire into an entry level career position with DAR.
