Call for Summer Employers - Biotech Leaders Academy

The LA Bioscience Hub is launching the Biotech Leaders Academy and we’re looking for bioscience companies that need one or more interns this summer. Our partner, East LA College, will assemble a cohort of 20 bright, eager bioscience students that are looking to develop their skills, get hands-on experience in the field, and build their resumes. 

 LA Bioscience Hub can help employers by paying a large portion of the students’ summer compensation. 

The program will run from June 13-August 19. The 10-week internship program will be paired with a bi-weekly entrepreneurship seminar for the students.  

 Students in the carefully vetted cohort will primarily be in the 2nd and 3rd years of their coursework. They'll be pursuing degrees in biology, microbiology, chemistry, and biochemistry. Our students will have a working knowledge of lab skills and concepts that they learn through courses like general and organic chemistry, intro to biotechnology, microbiology, and biology.

Is your bioscience company interested in hosting one (or more) of our students? If so, please complete the Company Interest Form.

Help us spread the word about this opportunity by sharing this post with others!
