The National Institute for Basic Biology (NIBB), Department of Basic Biology in the School of Life Science of SOKENDAI (the Graduate University for Advanced Studies) is offering international research internships for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to gain experience in scientific lab work.
Each intern will join ongoing research projects in a world-class research group. Interns can also participate in various departmental activities, journal clubs, and seminars by outstanding researchers inside and outside of NIBB. The NIBB Internship Program is a good opportunity to experience a part of our Ph.D. program for those who are considering entering the Ph.D. course in NIBB and SOKENDAI.
Furthermore, accommodation is provided onsite, and NIBB will provide financial support for travel expenses and accommodation costs. Please note that in some cases full reimbursement may not be available due to budget considerations.
In light of recent discussions among the NIBB Internship Committee and recent developments concerning both the domestic and international situations related to COVID-19, it has been decided that this year's internship program will be held, albeit on a more limited basis. As such, only international students currently enrolled in universities located within Japan will be accepted this year.
Applications for NIBB Internship Program 2020 are now open, and will close by 15th July, 2020. For application details, including information about the 2020 Internship Program, please click on the following link
