Call for Applications: Summer Student Program 2020



Deadline: May 2020


Are you a Master student looking for a summer work experience?

If you’ve already started master’s studies in organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, computational or theoretical chemistry, or a closely related field at any university within the EU (outside of the Czech Republic) and are looking for a summer work experience abroad from mid-July to the beginning of September (8-week program), IOCB Prague offers an opportunity to expand your scientific horizons while living in Prague, one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in Europe.
This year, the program takes place between 13 July and 4 September.
IOCB's Summer Student Program is designed to provide students with engaging and meaningful work experience, opportunities to expand their professional networks, and chances to develop their skills and competencies by receiving valuable feedback from experienced scientists.
IOCB Prague will work to match students with the research group that fits their future career interests. Given the highly competitive nature of the program, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be assigned. Applicants not selected for a position will be notified by email by the end of May.
Please note: This program is not intended for students already on Erasmus or other fellowships.

Accommodation and travel

The institute will provide students with accommodation at a nearby dormitory and will support students with the equivalent of 980 € for their 8-week stay. 
Travel expenses are to be covered by the students.
