Internship Application Process

Internship Application Process

You are here

The JCVI Internship Program uses a rolling admissions process, i.e., applications are considered as they are received once the position is posted. Only complete applications will be considered. If a faculty member or senior staff is interested in your application, you will be contacted to begin the interview process. If you are selected, you will receive an official offer from the JCVI HR department. Once a position is filled, all applicants to that position will be notified.

Our application system only accepts ONE file*. The easiest way to do so is to scan your files together and submit them as ONE complete file. Files that may be requested with your application:

  • Your resume (required for all applicants)
  • Cover letter
  • Your current school transcript (does not have to be official).
  • An essay explaining:
    • Your specific scientific interests
    • How your skills and coursework are relevant to the position
    • How this internship will prepare you to meet your professional goals

* Please ensure that the document is one of the following file types:

  • MS Word (.doc or .docx)
  • Rich Text File (.rtf)
  • PDF
