We have opened our applications for the Occupational Health Sciences’ 2020 Summer Student Research Awards. Occupational Health Sciences’ Summer Student Research Awards are three-month paid summer internships designed to introduce undergraduate students to biomedical and occupational health research.

The Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences conducts basic and applied research, providing educational and outreach services in Oregon. We focus on understanding and preventing problems related to worker well-being, health and safety in the workplace. Our research themes that respond to our mission include: Total Worker Health; Sleep and Shift Work: Impact on Safety and Health; Genome Instability and Human Disease; Injury, Treatment, Recovery and Prevention. In addition, the institute has an Outreach, Education and Dissemination program.

The deadline to apply is February 14, 2020 by 5:00 PM. To be eligible for an Institute funded award, applicants must be undergraduate students attending Oregon schools or who are current Oregon residents. You must be working on your first bachelors degree. Visit our Summer Internship page for our FAQ page and information on the application process. Download our PDF flyer to learn more or to share with someone who might be interested. We look forward to hosting our 2020 Summer Interns!
