Summer Student Program

Are you a Master's student looking for summer work experience?

If you’ve already started master’s studies in organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, computational or theoretical chemistry, or a closely related field at any university within the EU (outside of the Czech Republic) and are looking for a summer work experience abroad from mid-July to the beginning of September (8-week program), IOCB Prague offers an opportunity to expand your scientific horizons while living in Prague, one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in Europe. 

IOCB's Summer Student Program is designed to provide students with engaging and meaningful work experience, opportunities to expand their professional networks, and chances to develop their skills and competencies by receiving valuable feedback from experienced scientists.

IOCB Prague works to match students with the research group that fits their future career interests. Given the highly competitive nature of the program, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be assigned. Applicants not selected for a position will be notified by email by the end of May.

This program is not intended for students already on Erasmus or other fellowships.

Accommodation and travel

The institute provides students with accommodation at a nearby dormitory and supports students with the equivalent of c. 980 € for their 8-week stay. Travel expenses are covered by the students.
