We are currently seeking outstanding candidates for 2019 summer internships in our R&D Center in Palo Alto, California
We are looking for driven and creative summer interns to conduct research in the following areas:
•Parameter analysis of real-world product production
•Analytical tools for Fermentation processes
•Evaluation of Recovery equipment
•Evaluation of formulation materials and process
The ideal candidates will be pursuing degrees in the life, physical, or engineering sciences and be familiar with basic laboratory techniques in relevant areas. The intern must be an individual who is detail oriented, friendly, and thrives in a highly collaborative environment.
Qualified candidates will exhibit the following characteristics:
•Pursuing a bachelor’s degree in
Chemical Engineering, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Materials Science, or a related field
•Completed their sophomore year of undergrad education and will continue education in the fall
•Ability to work in an interdisciplinary scientific setting
