The IBS Center for Soft and Living Matter offers a variety of research opportunities during the summer. These short-term placements as a Research Intern give a select few talented students the opportunity to gain experience in a particular laboratory in soft matter science or to learn a specific technique. They work alongside postdocs at the center and contribute to the research activities of the center.

Places for interns are awarded on a competitive basis, with the application period in advance.

DOWNLOAD APPLICATION FORM

Eligibility

Applicants must be enrolled at undergraduate degree programs in universities and colleges in Korea or overseas, and entering 3rd or 4th year of study in 2019.
We seek interns who are highly motivated by the excitement and potential of the cutting-edge research that is possible at IBS Center for Soft and Living Matter, who have the curiosity and academic ability needed to excel in their chosen areas of study. Successful applicants will also require proficiency in oral and written communication skills in English for advanced study in science, and the ability to interact effectively with people from a wide range of backgrounds.

Duration

The tenure of the Research Intern placements is 8 weeks. Interns may not take extended leave during their internship, and are expected to work full time on their project. Internships may begin at July 1st and end at August 23rd. Application deadlines is designated (see below for key dates).

Benefits

  • A Living Allowance of 800,000 KRW per month while at the center.
  • Accommodation on UNIST campus while at the center.
  • World-class research environments and competitive equipment
  • Experience in a new science: Fastly growing interdisciplinary field of soft matter
  • Work on challenging projects with top scientists, in one of the most international research centers in Korea

During the summer program, interns work on scientific research, engineering and computing projects that help advance our mission (see below for project information). Interns have opportunities to explore other research fields in soft matter theme through weekly seminars and discussions with people from very different fields- from chemical engineering, computer science to pure biology or physics.
