Pasteur Foundation


Deadline: 2015-01-15 (National)

Located in the heart of Paris, the Institut Pasteur is one of the world's leading biomedical research organizations. With 130+ laboratories and 2,500 people on campus, it is a vibrant, international community devoted to basic scientific research primarily in the area of infectious disease. The Pasteur Foundation Summer Internship Program provides four U.S. undergraduates with the rare opportunity to conduct summer research at the Institut Pasteur. The foundationís goal is to encourage students in the pursuit of a scientific career and to expose them to an international laboratory experience.


Applicants must be undergraduates with an excellent academic record and a strong interest in biosciences and biomedical research (prior lab experience is highly recommended); have completed three full years (6 semesters) of college course work by the time the internship commences; and not yet have received an undergraduate degree at the time of application. Knowledge of French or desire to learn it is advisable. Open to U.S. citizens only.


Ten weeks in summer.


Depending on availability, affordable housing in a residence on campus may be possible. Interns will receive a living allowance of $400/week for a total maximum of $4,000. Travel/housing are not paid by this program, but a $300 subsidy is provided and intended to defray cost of travel and requisite insurance. Applicants should be eager to immerse in a different culture, and self-sufficient enough to arrange travel and secure housing in Paris.
