The Summer Laboratory Science Program at Mayo Clinic offers science majors the opportunity to explore career options and gain experience in the clinical laboratory environment.
The application for this opportunity is NOW OPEN and is open through February 28, 2018. Interested students can apply online at www.mayoclinic.org/jobs. Please apply to job posting #92270BR.
Our technologists are part of an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals dedicated to patients’ health. In the laboratory, our technologists work with blood, tissue, and body fluid specimens. They perform tests from the simple to the complex, using manual methods and state-of-the-art instrumentation, and they are responsible for the accuracy of the results they generate.
Summer Laboratory Science Program participants will work in one of our clinical testing laboratories specializing in the areas of biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, genetics, and hematopathology to name a few. They will assist our laboratory personnel in pre-analytic functions such as aliquotting, preparing, extracting, and centrifuging biological specimens collected from patients.
This is not a research program but rather an opportunity to work alongside professionals in the field of clinical laboratory science. For research interests visit: http://www.mayo.edu/mayo-clinic-graduate-school-of-biomedical-sciences/programs/summer-undergraduate-research-fellowship.
Summer Lab Science Program participants must be completing their junior year of a four-year baccalaureate program in human biology, chemistry, microbiology, molecular genetics, clinical laboratory science/medical laboratory science/medical technology or other biomedical science related field.
