New Undergraduate Research Internship Opportunity at Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle has an exciting new internship program for undergraduates interested in cancer research. Please distribute appropriately:

Pathways Undergraduate Researchers is a one- to two-year, paid summer internship program for rising first-, second-, and third-year college students. During the summer, interns engage in nine weeks of mentored research at the Fred Hutch in Seattle, and participate in cancer biology seminars, professional development workshops, and social activities. During the school year, the program engages students at their respective colleges/universities with online workshops, continued mentorship, and academic support.

Internship research projects focus on cancer biology under one of the Center’s five divisions: Basic Sciences, Human Biology, Public Health Sciences, Clinical Research, and Vaccines and Infectious Disease.
