THE ISTERNSHIP SUMMER PROGRAM

The ISTernship (“IST-” + “(int)ernship“) is a summer internship program for bachelor’s and master’s students who are looking to expand their scientific research experience. Every summer since 2013, roughly 30-40 students join the ISTernship program and work closely with our faculty or a lab member on a short research project.

As part of the application, prospective interns choose a group to work in, and successful applicants agree on a research project with the group leader. The participating faculty will be announced latest when the call opens.

Upon arrival, ISTerns receive an introduction to research at IST Austria as well as an introduction to the IST Austria Graduate School. The program culminates with a research symposium, where ISTerns present their work to peers, faculty and lab mentors.
