In addition to the OIST PhD Program, seminars, and workshops, the OIST Graduate School offers education and research opportunities through a system of undergraduate and graduate placements as Research Interns. These short-term (up to 6 months) placements as a research intern give a select few talented students the opportunity to gain experience in a particular laboratory or to learn a specific technique. They work under the direction of a Professor at OIST and contribute to the research activities of OIST.

Places for Research Interns are awarded twice a year on a competitive basis, with the application period months in advance. Download Research Internship program brochure. Download OIST Research Internship program flyer.
