The IBS Center for Soft and Living Matter offers a variety of research opportunities during the winter. 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 in an undergraduate degree program at UNIST (All disciplines) and entering 3rd or 4th year of study in 2019. Students would be subject to the UNIST Research Internship Program which is mandatory for graduation, and will get 1~3 credit depending on one's internship duration.

Duration

The tenure of the Research Intern placements is between 4 and 8 weeks. Tenure can be extended to spring semester in some laboratories. Interns are expected to work full time on their project, and may begin and end at any time during the winter internship period. But application deadlines is designated (see below for key dates).

Open House

The Center for Soft and Living Matter hold the open house program on November 22nd, 2018 for offering research information for students who are interested in soft matter field. 6 of faculties of the center will show their laboratory and introduce their research. The open house will be 6-8 PM and there will be a Q&A session with professors afterward. Only 30 students in order of application will be approved to attend. For sign up, send name/ affiliation/ grade to jeewonchoi.e@gmail.com. (Attendee of SNS Lab Tour held by UNIST SNS Student Councill do not need to send the sign-up email)

Benefits

  • 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
  • Credits on UNIST Research Internship

During the winter 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 electrical engineering, computer science to pure biology or physics.

Required Application Materials and Procedure

Please fill out and submit the following materials to jeewonchoi.e@gmail.com, to apply for the Research Internship.

The applicant is notified of the receipt of an application within a day of submission. Applicants will then be notified of the outcome of their application once a decision has been made. Applicants can be interviewed before the result.
