Short-term internship

Our short-term internship programme runs from June to August each year. Outstanding undergraduate, graduate as well as medical students with an interest in an academic scientific career are encouraged to apply for the opportunity to join K-RITH’s vibrant research community. The 8 to 12-week research experience involves interns working on a research project under the mentorship of the K-RITH science faculty.

How to apply

To apply please submit an application form and a cover letter with a 200-word motivation on why you should be selected for the programme, and which laboratory you are interested in working in, to education@ahri.org. Please note that you will need to identify your own funding as although we cover laboratory expenses, we do not offer financial support to cover relocation costs or a daily stipend. Please only apply if financial support has been obtained.
