Summer Internship Opportunities

The Chemistry Department sponsors traditional chemistry internships as well as medical internships.  The internships are typically scheduled during USNA training blocks, which are 4 weeks in duration.  However, selected internships may last up to 6 weeks or more.

Chemistry Internships

Chemistry internships include a wide range of opportunities - from forensics work to hepatitis-B research to genetic sequencing studies.  Research can be conducted at Department of Defense facilities, government laboratories, and civilian institutions.  A complete listing, with descriptions, can be obtained at the link below.

The application must be completed online.  Before applying, you must receive permission from your company officer to apply for internships in specific training blocks.  This is to minimize schedule conflicts with other PTEs, including Plebe Detail.  The same application is used for chemistry and medical internships.

Application deadline:                                                            TBD
(Even though the deadline is past, you may still submit an application.  The link will stay active for a while longer.)
