Biology Internship Opportunities

The goal of the biology internship is to expose students to research in some of Israel's most exciting laboratories. All biology internships will take place at Tel Aviv University.

During the course of the internship, students work with PhD candidates who will instruct them and supervise their work. 

Depending on the type of research in each lab, students would have a chance to learn different experimental lab techniques, such as PCR, gel electrophoresis, cell cultering, flow cytometry and microscropy.

Students are required to attend the lab at least 3 days a week, 3-6 hours each day, as required by the lab.

All students will enroll in BIOL-UA 9980 Biology Internship for 2-4 credits. This class meets weekly and throughout the semester students will present their work to their fellow internship students.

At the end of the term, the students will submit a scientific essay, which includes an introduction to the field of study, description of the methods they have used, results and discussion. This essay will satisfy the final research project requirement for the class.

Potential Internship Placements

Please note that internship options are subject to change and are available to students interested in an internship for credit or not for credit.

Emerging and Interactive Media

In the field of Media and Arts, Israel’s global advantage and added value is due to the developed local innovation ecosystem and the advanced computer skills of Israeli entrepreneurs, who can begin to implement creative ideas, untrammeled by any technical deficits.

Matching students with placements should start with the student’s individual profile, needs, and goals.

Because Emerging Media it is a pioneering field, there is not one traditional path that must be followed to professionalize, allowing for multiple possibilities in three major sectors (e.g. advertising, online education delivery systems, and art institutions). 

In addition to these examples, other possible internships include some of Israel’s world-renowned art and history museums (Agam Museum, Diaspora Museum, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Yad Vashem) as well as more research oriented opportunities with leading scholars in one of Israel’s leading academic institutions in the field.
