Hi,

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

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

·
