2021 Summer Internship and Opportunity Fair

The Summer Internship and Opportunity Fair will take place virtually on Thursday, March 4 from 1-5PM.

 

This will be the 11th year for this fair and while the purpose of the event remains to connect employers with undergraduate students seeking internships, volunteer opportunities, part-time and full-time summer employment, intent going forward is to use this fair as a showcase for organizations that demonstrate inclusive excellence.

Career Success is committed to partnering with organizations that prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion in everything they do. These organizations may have been started or consist of many employees that have been underrepresented in the past including men and women of color, people with disabilities, and those in the LGBTQ+ community.

The event will host over 100 employers who are looking to hire Ohio State students of all majors.

Registration is open now.

Full-Time Laboratory Position Available

Posted on behalf of David Toczyski, a professor of the Department of Biochemistry and Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCSF. This is an opportunity for a student graduating in Spring 2021.


I am currently hiring a graduating student into a full time position to work in my laboratory at UCSF studying cell cycle regulation. The work is a combination of biochemistry and tissue culture. You will be using Mass spectrometry and/or CRISPR screening to characterize ubiquitin ligases. You must have some experience doing undergraduate research. However, the exact topic of the research is not important, as long as it is some aspect of cell biology, molecular biology, or genetics. This is a perfect position for someone looking to go to graduate school in a few years. It is a fun, dynamic lab with a mix of students and postdocs.

The start date of the position is, ideally, May–June, however we would consider someone earlier than that. This would be a good position for someone who wants to go to grad school. In fact, most of my previous graduate students have gone on to graduate school, and it has been great experience for that.

Please email me if you wish to apply. Include the department from which you are graduating, your GPA, and the name and contact info of the lab in which you worked, as well as the dates you work there and 2-3 sentences describing the work.

Please put “SRA” into the subject line when you email me at dpt4darwin@gmail.com.
