Experiences in Research are summer internships for students to gain hands-on experience with professionals at Berkeley Lab. Students will be working directly on cutting edge projects alongside experts in STEM. Projects will be focused around different aspects of STEM such as administration, communications, experimental research, and more.

The Introductory College Level Experience in Microbiology (iCLEM) is an eight-week paid summer science intensive hosted by the Joint BioEnergy Institute. The program seeks to broaden students’ understanding of biotechnology and microbiology through a research project, as well as expose students to career exploration and preparation for college.
