Pfizer Medicinal Chemistry is looking for talented undergraduate and graduate students with a strong interest in synthetic organic chemistry to participate in the company’s Summer Student Worker Program (SWP). Research will be conducted at one of Pfizer’s major R&D sites in Groton, Connecticut or La Jolla, California.
Students will have the opportunity to work for 10-12 weeks (typically May to August) directly with a medicinal chemist investigating a novel research project or as part of a larger project team. The internship includes various programs introducing the students to scientists within the Pfizer organization and concludes with a poster session.
These positions are paid, housing and transportation to the Pfizer site are not included but housing is potentially available through local universities which can be reached by bike/car/carshare. More information will be provided during the phone interview.
Applications will be open until March 5, 2021. Students will be interviewed on a rolling basis, so you are encouraged to apply early. You can apply here. Pfizer works with a third-party staffing company, so they suggest that applicants also complete this questionnaire, which will be reviewed by Pfizer internally.
