The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) is looking for highly qualified Bachelor’s or Master’s students in the fields of biology, chemistry & materials, computer science, data science & scientific computing, mathematics, physics, neuroscience and interdisciplinary areas to apply for the ISTernship program.
The ISTernship (“ISTA-” + “(int)ernship“) is a summer internship program for students from all over the world who are looking to expand their scientific research experience. Every summer since 2013, students join the ISTernship program and work closely with our faculty or a lab member on a short research project.
As part of the application, prospective interns choose a group to work in, and successful applicants agree on a research project with the group leader. A list of participating professors and further information on their research can be found on our website.
Upon arrival, ISTerns receive an introduction to research at ISTA as well as an introduction to the ISTA Graduate School. The program culminates with a research symposium, where ISTerns present their work to peers, faculty and lab mentors.
Internships are full-time and will be conducted exclusively in English.
2-3 months between May 15 and September 15. Exact dates and length are decided together with the supervisor.
Candidates must be enrolled Bachelor- or Master of Science students (or similar) in good standing at a degree granting institution. They must have completed at least the fourth semester of their bachelor’s studies (before the respective start date).
We ask you to upload the following documents to the application portal:
• CV
• Statement of purpose
• University transcripts and diplomas of all degree programs and all years you have attended and/or are currently enrolled in (we recommend to submit these in the original language as well as in English)
• Contact information of 1 or 2 referees
Each successful candidate receives compensation to assist with the cost of living in Austria and travel to and from Austria.
The application deadline for the 2023 ISTernship is February 15, 2023.
