If we asked you to picture a summer spent interning at a company that makes some of the world’s most technical science and biotechnology products, what would you imagine? Sitting in a cold basement testing knobs on Bunsen burners and microscopes all day? Pushing around lab carts instead of papers? Working with lab rats?
At Thermo Fisher, it’s none of the above. In fact, it’s virtually the opposite. The company is currently accepting applications for its annual class of summer interns, and it’s on a mission to make science more fun than Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye could do combined.
A few quick details about the company: Thermo Fisher is one of the world’s leading science and biotechnology product development companies. Its mission is to enable customers to make the world healthier, cleaner, and safer. The team at Thermo Fisher achieves this with advanced science equipment that can do everything from scan the human genome to make sure your milk is bacteria free.
Now that we’ve covered the basics, what makes Thermo Fisher’s internship program so great?
