Key Facts

Internship Overview

 

This internship will provide you with essential skills and knowledge to become a successful researcher. It will equip you with the knowledge and understanding of performing literature reviews in molecular biology areas such as cell biology, genetics, and cell imaging. To stay competitive in the field of biomedical research, universities and organizations need experienced molecular biology experts with research skills and an understanding of cutting-edge methods in cell biology. This 4-week internship is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to apply in molecular biology research. It will train you to perform research in an international research environment. 

 

Through the 4-week virtual internship, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills required to participate in biomedical science research. It aims to provide essential knowledge for developing your early research career in the molecular biology field.

 

Internship Journey

 

The online distance-learning internship will provide opportunities to receive expertise from the Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID) researchers. This internship includes four weeks of research-based tasks.

 

Week 1: Literature review 

During the first week of your research internship, you will gain experience in literature reviewing and finding articles using research databases and search engines.

 

Week 2: Developing a research proposal

You will gain knowledge of writing your research proposal. You will develop your research idea in week 2 and learn to develop a research plan for your own idea. 

 

Week 3: Data analysis

In week 3, you will learn to perform data analysis and statistical analysis in research. You will be given different research tasks to perform data analysis.

 

Week 4: Research project

You will work on a short literature review project and apply your knowledge of molecular biology and cell biology in your project. The project aims to improve your academic writing, research, critical thinking, and literature search skills.

 

Fees and Funding
