Catalog of Biomedical Research Internships

Biomedical research is the broad area of science that looks for ways to prevent and treat diseases that cause illness and death in people and in animals. This general field of research includes many areas of both the life and physical sciences. Utilizing biotechnology techniques, biomedical researchers study biological processes and diseases with the ultimate goal of developing effective treatments and cures. Biomedical research is an evolutionary process requiring careful experimentation by many scientists, including biologists and chemists. Discovery of new medicines and therapies requires careful scientific experimentation, development, and evaluation. -New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research

If you want to see if biomedical research is a possible career path for you, our friends at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have shared a resource they developed, which is a catalog of biomedical research internships offered nationwide for high school, undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate, and first-year medical students.  You can check it out online here.

Introduction to Consulting: A Case Walkthrough with Avascent

Have you ever wondered how companies make strategic decisions, get the inside scoop on their competitors, and figure out exactly what their customers want? Have you ever wondered about all that, but been especially curious about how aerospace & defense companies do it?

Answer those questions – and a few others, too – at 3pm on Friday, October 6th Monday October 9 (NEW DATE), with Middlebury ‘11.5 alum and current Avascent Senior Analyst Eoin Power. Using real examples from work Avascent has done in the world of VIP aircraft interiors (think custom-molded toilets, missile defense systems, in-flight access to new Hollywood blockbusters), you’ll walk through the typical stages of a strategy consulting project, and see how a project team structures problems, builds models, and develops recommendations.

RSVP here to let us know you’re coming, or just plan to be there!

Also, you’re invited to have a 20 minute 1-1 chat with Eoin about his work, career path and tips for applying.  It’s first come, first serve, on the same day, Monday October 9 between 9-12.  Sign up here for your slot!

If any of this sounds interesting enough you’d like to get paid to do it, good news – we’re hiring!  Apply on Handshake for summer intern and full-time Analyst roles. Avascent is the leading strategy and management consulting firm serving clients operating in aerospace, defense, and other government-driven markets.

Engineering Fellows Program at Kleiner Perkins (KPCB)

KPCB Fellows spend their time working at companies like Pinterest, Coursera, DoorDash, Airbnb, Square, Slack or another company in the #KPFamily. The work experience is incredibly valuable as fellows are mentored by a senior technical leader. At the same time, you are also invited to one-of-a-kind events hosted by KPCB where you meet partners from Kleiner Perkins, CEOs and senior executives from many of our portfolio companies, and other bright fellows who will go on to change technology in the future. The idea is to expose you to as much as we can offer, so that you can leave your the summer with a better understanding of how iconic companies are built and hopefully, one day, start your own or be a part of the beginning of a new venture. As a Fellow, you’ll be joining a network of amazing alumni fellows who have gone on to be venture capitalists, start their own companies, join rapidly growing startups and so much more.

The answer to most questions can be found on http://kpcbfellows.com/faq

Over the course of a summer, KPCB Design and Engineering Fellows join our portfolio companies, where they develop their technical or design skills and are mentored by an executive within the company. Participants in our new Product Fellows program will get the chance to spend a full year working at a Silicon Valley startup. Fellows will also be invited to attend both private events held by Kleiner Perkins as well as by our portfolio companies, where they can meet other talented engineering and design students, network with luminaries in their respective fields, and explore the San Francisco Bay Area.
