Learn about internship opportunities available to those majoring in Biology.
Siena Heights University biology students are eligible for hundreds of paid research internships supported by the National Science Foundation. These summer research opportunities allow small groups of students to work in research programs at various host institutions.
Siena Heights University biology majors have interned at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Colorado State University, and Indiana University, for instance. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Local internships and co-ops are also possible.
Former SHU biology students Maria Butler and Joseph Lemanski were awarded summer research internships. Butler conducted her research in Turkey studying the responses of the European honeybees to different odors, including alcohol. Lemanski spent his summer in Texas examining the effects of the 2010 British Petroleum oil spill on the deep-water organisms in the Gulf of Mexico.
