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

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
scientists

·          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

*Duration:*  Undergraduate interns begin in the first week of June 2011 and
