Massachusetts Life Sciences Center Internship Program

MLSC Internships at DMI

Over the past several years, we have worked with MLSC to sponsor interns through the MLSC Internship program.  We enjoy the mentoring process and gain as much from the interaction as our interns.  Furthermore, we have a track record of offering full-time positions through this program.

Program Overview

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center’s Internship Challenge is a workforce development program focused on enhancing the talent pipeline for Massachusetts companies engaged in life sciences. The program facilitates the placement of students and recent graduates who are considering career opportunities in the life sciences in paid internships across the state.  Consistent with the MLSC’s role as a catalyst in growing the talent needed by the life sciences industry, the program is designed to create hundreds of new internship opportunities each year by enabling small businesses to hire paid interns.

Objectives of the Internship Challenge include expanding the pool of prospective employees who have practical experience, enhancing opportunities for mentoring, enabling more students to explore career opportunities despite the challenging economic environment, and providing to students interested in working in the life sciences a peer network through educational and informational networking events.

Internships can be part or full time and can take place throughout the Program Year, which runs from May 1st through April 30th.

Students or recent graduates that are looking for an internship in the life sciences industry will need to first complete an online application, which includes their resume and a cover letter. Applications are accepted year-round but will expire after six months if not renewed.
