Summer Student Program

COVID-19 update

Dear applicants for the IOCB Summer Student Program 2020,

We appreciate your interest in being a part of the IOCB team over the summer holidays. It is always an honour for us to host students from around Europe at our institute. 

However, after careful consideration and based on the uncertain situation regarding travel conditions and rules for work/study abroad, we decided not to open the program this year.
Please, do not hesitate to apply for the SSP 2021 next year in March or apply for our PhD program in January 2021.

Katerina (SSP coordinator)

Are you a Master student looking for a 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.
