The Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC) proudly offers many educational opportunities throughout the year.


SNPRC Summer Internship Program

Successful applicants for the SNPRC Summer Internship Program will be paid hourly and placed in a laboratory, clinical veterinary, or veterinary pathology setting under the guidance of an SNPRC faculty mentor. The students will work full or part-time for 8 weeks during the summer, learning research and technical skills and conducting laboratory studies. Students begin their 8-week internship on June 5, completing their work on July 28. The focus of the SNPRC program is to provide the interns with one-on-one, hands-on experience within the SNPRC. The program will provide an opportunity for interns to gain veterinary experience and/or conduct research and develop applied research skills. Upon completing this program, interns will be equipped with solid skills and experience that will better enable them to successfully pursue graduate studies in veterinary and/or biomedical fields.

Application instructions and information can be found Here.
