Summer Student Program 2021

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 between July and 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.

2019 Summer Student Program participants

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

This summer, the program will take place between July and September. However, due to the epidemiological situation, it will be possible to adjust the stay for individual participants by agreement.

IOCB Prague will work to match students with the research group that fits their future career interests. 

Annotations for individual projects are listed here.

Given the highly competitive nature of the program, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be assigned. 

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

Accommodation and travel

The institute will provide students with accommodation at a nearby dormitory and will support students with the equivalent of 980 € for their 8-week stay.

Travel expenses are to be covered by the students.
