UNC ImPact Application Window
TBD

Our internship program is divided into three broad career areas:

  • higher education (including teaching, outreach, and administration);
  • biotech, business, and entrepreneurship (including industry research, writing, regulatory affairs, business, etc.); and
  • science policy, government, and nonprofits

We have defined these career areas very broadly such that nearly any PhD career can fit into one of the categories. This gives you maximum flexibility in choosing your internship opportunity.

The application for an internship requires the following materials:

  • Internship application (Coming soon!)
  • Signed PI Consent Form (Coming soon!)
  • Personal Statement that addresses why you want to be an ImPACT scholar and how you anticipate that you will benefit from your participation in an internship. Please also include your research area of interest and how this may influence your choice of internship location.
  • CV

The application period will open in January and will be announced via the TIBBS listserv. If you are not currently on the TIBBS listserv and would like to be, please visit HERE.
