Dear Administrator,

Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research is offering a 10-week paid
internship for students interested in a research career in plant sciences.
I was wondering if there is a place on your website where you can post our
internship opportunity.
Below are full descriptions of our internship program.
I will be waiting for your response.

Thank you,
Min Kyung (Milly) Kim

for Plant Research

Position                                     Plant Genome Research Program
Summer Internships 2011

Deadline                                    Friday, February 11, 2011


The Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) at the Boyce Thompson Institute and
Cornell University is offering paid, 10-week undergraduate 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:

·          Molecular Biology

·          Plant-Insect Interactions

·          Genetics and Development

·          Cellular Biology

·          Pathology and Immunity

·          Biochemistry

·          Epigenetics

·          Bioinformatics

·          Biotechnology

·          Plant-Fungi Symbiosis

·          Nutrient Biosynthesis

·          Breeding for Crop Improvement

·          Soil Toxicity

·          And more!

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

·          Join one of the participating labs

·          Participate in fieldwork, depending on the lab

·          Work on a supervised independent project within the framework of
the mentor's research program

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

·          Attend a 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
