ETH Zurich offers summer research project stays within the Amgen Scholars Program for students studying for a Bachelor’s degree at a European university. Research projects are available in the Departments of Biology, of Biosystems Science and Engineering, of Health Sciences and Technology, of Chemistry, Applied Biosciences and of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering. The program covers nine weeks of intensive research in a state-of-the art laboratory in Zurich or Basel. Working as part of a research team, you will have the opportunity to interact with leading scientists and PhD students. A closing highlight of the program is the joint symposium for all European Amgen Scholars at the University of Cambridge. In addition to conducting hands-on research, you will attend lectures and workshops offering both insights into state-of-the art research and the opportunity to learn cross-cutting skills such as scientific writing, presentation and intercultural skills.
