Research Internship Program
Internships are available at our Sun City West, AZ location for undergraduate and graduate level students as well as current medical students and students in other allied health fields seeking research experience in the areas of biomechanics, clinical study implementation and motion analysis. Once trained, interns are assigned tasks ranging from data processing and analysis to biomechanical preparation and testing. Interns will leave the program with an understanding of the steps and milestones involved in preparing for, conducting and reporting on research studies.
How to Apply
Download and complete an Intern Inquiry Form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your resume and a writing sample demonstrating your scientific writing skills. Although not required, a cover letter is highly recommended as well. Applications are accepted throughout the year according to the following deadlines:
- Spring Term (February – May): December 1st
- *Summer Term (June – August): March 1st
- Fall Term (September – December): July 1st
Actual internship start and end dates are flexible, however we do require a minimum of 2 months of availability to ensure proper training and productivity.
* Please note there are currently no Internships available for the Summer 2014 term. Please check back periodically for updates.
Applicants who have submitted all of the required documents by the deadline will undergo an initial screening to determine those that will proceed to the interview process. Interviews generally take place in December/January for Spring applicants, in March/April for Summer applicants, and in July/August for Fall applicants. Internship openings are highly dependent on project availability and fluctuate throughout the year. Competitive applicants not accepted at the start of the term(s) for which they have applied may be placed on an alternate list to be offered a position later in that term based on project availability.
