The Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) has announced the release of application form for its Laboratory Training Program 2019 for undergraduate students of any nationality.
The CNIO is a young institution and a magnet for talented researchers from all over the world. The research center announces up to 8 vacancies for undergraduate students to work in a lab at the CNIO over the summer.
The CNIO is fully committed to preparing and training the next generation of cancer researchers, and to that end has made “excellence” the watchword of its advanced learning experiences. Participants benefit from the center’s internationally diverse setting, plus the challenges of state-of-the-art science and all that it offers in return. At the same time they input with their own ideas, energy and spontaneity.
Each student will be matched with a specific laboratory based on the student’s interest and background. The student will be working under the supervision of the group/unit leader or a member of the research group. The participants will attend a series of seminars given by faculty members and researchers from the CNIO. Students will be required to present the results of their summer projects at the end of the program.
