The scientific fields are incredibly diverse, and are constantly changing. Science is a foundational component in a wide variety of industries, including health, technology, and finance. Professionals with a strong academic background in a scientific field are perfectly poised to take on roles at the forefront of today’s global economy. From research and analysis to data collection and design, the opportunities for science professionals are endless.

Remote science internships are designed to provide students and professionals with hands-on experience in their chosen fields. These placements offer a well-rounded view of various industries, and ensure interns have a strong understanding of the role science plays in a variety of fields and careers. Interns are placed with cutting-edge scientific organizations and leading businesses around the world, and gain experience in everything from research to marketing the latest scientific development.

Interns learn directly from leading engineers, researchers, and academics from all around the world. The truly global nature of these placements ensures interns develop unique, international perspectives on their fields.

Here are just a few example roles our science interns have taken on before:

  1. Data Science

    Obtaining, analyzing, and preparing data is a key part of many remote internships in science. Just because they aren’t physically in a lab, doesn’t mean remote interns can’t gain experience in handling data. Interns may be asked to handle various data sets and use them to propose solutions and prepare reports.

  2. Policy

    Scientific policy is one of the most important areas of the field. It involves not only various areas of science, but also advocacy work, politics, and public communications. Interns begin to develop the skills required to explain scientific concepts to the public as well as to government agencies, and to advocate for the scientific community.

  3. Scientific Writing

    The ability to write clearly and accurately is a valuable, but rare, skill in the scientific field. Interns may assist in drafting reports, newsletters, articles, and press releases, to name just a few. Scientific writing roles are generally data-heavy, and interns also gain skills in data analysis and research.

  4. Research

    Most science internships include research tasks. Research skills, including reviewing case studies and analyzing data, are absolutely essential for a career in the scientific fields. Interns learn best practices and may even contribute to reports and studies.
