This summer, undergraduate students will have a chance to get hands-on animal science experience through internships with the USDA-ARS. The USDA’s Meat Animal Research Center is accepting applications for six internships in the program. According to the USDA site:
“Students will apply for a specific research project by selecting from abstracts that describe available projects within each Research Unit. In addition to their research project, students will participate in formal weekly discussions, which will provide the opportunity to share their experiences with their peers and research scientists at the Center.”
The internships are salaried, and students will work with a mentor in the USDA program.
Applications are due Feb. 1, 2012. Read more about the internships.
