The Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases (IIAD), a Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Center of Excellence, is hosting two summer 2017 internship opportunities.
As in 2016, the Institute will host undergraduate students majoring in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or agricultural education along with veterinary students interested in furthering their knowledge and competencies in the areas of public health, education, outreach and extension.
Veterinary students of any year or classification and undergraduate students with junior and senior classifications are encouraged to apply to the program. Selected interns will be matched with IIAD scientist, education, or agricultural Extension mentors for paid six-week summer internships gaining hands-on experience while working on projects related to the detection, control, and mitigation of high consequence transboundary animal diseases.
Applications are now available and are due by 5 p.m. CST on February 28, 2017. Please post and/or distribute this opportunity with interested undergraduate and veterinary students.
