I have this group as a contact for posting Plant Science Internships. I'd
like to share this opportunity with your organization:

 *Plant Genome Research Program Summer Internships 2013*

Employer                                   Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI)
for Plant Research

Position                                     Plant Genome Research Program
Summer Internships 2011

Deadline                                    Friday, February 8, 2013


The Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) at the Boyce Thompson Institute at
Cornell University offers paid, 10-week summer internships for students
interested in a research career in plant sciences to protect the
environment, enhance human health, and improve agriculture.  This is a
great opportunity to gain research experience in the following areas of
plant science research:

 ·          Bioenergy and Bioproducts

·          Cell and Developmental Biology

·          Disease and Resistance

·          Genomics and Systems Biology

·          Molecular Biology

·          Plant-Insect Interactions

·          Biochemistry

·          Epigenetics

·          Plant-Fungi Symbiosis

·          Breeding for Crop Improvement

·          Environmental and Stress Response

·          Science Education

·          Bioinformatics and Computer Science

By participating in PGRP summer internships, students gain a broader
knowledge of plant genetics and take away a better understanding of genuine
scientific research. Students in the internship program will have the
opportunity to:

·          Work closely with graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and
scientists on a supervised independent project within the framework of the
mentor's research program

·          Attend weekly plant science seminar with scientists from BTI,
Cornell and the USDA

·          Present their research to the other students, scientists, and
mentors at our PGRP Student Symposium

·          Attend lab meetings, read and discuss recent literature related
to their project

·          Participate in fieldwork, depending on the lab
