Apprenticeships, Internships, Mentored Research

Want to make a difference in the world? Work with a team whose mission is to improve human health? Help find cures for diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes?

The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) is looking for high performing students, high school through graduate school, to join our team as part of JAX’s internship, apprenticeship and mentored research fellowship programs. These programs range from summer-only paid experiences to more in-depth yearlong academic programs at our campuses in Bar Harbor, Maine, and Farmington, Conn.

Each program offers a challenging, hands-on experience in your chosen area of interest and also to be part of the JAX team. Explore opportunities that range from research in the laboratory, to promoting JAX science through social media, to supporting the organization in areas such as human resources and finance. Whatever your interests, JAX has a perfect spot for wherever you are in your educational journey.
