Info for Internship Sites

The GSICE Program supports PhD students to prepare, find, and succeed in experiential opportunities beyond academic research. The goal of GSICE is to provide students with hands-on experience in appropriate career environments so that they will make informed decisions about which of the many career paths to pursue post graduation. The GSICE program consists of two main components: the GSICE training component and the GSICE internship.

  • Students of the GSICE Program are in good-standing in one of the following graduate programs at UCSF: Bioengineering, BMI, BMS, Biophysics, CCB, DSCB, Epidemiology, Global health, History of health sciences, Medical Anthropology, Neuroscience, Nursing, OCS, PSPG, Sociology, or TETRAD.

  • Students eligible for internships will be advanced graduate students (at minimum having passed all their doctoral qualifying exams).

  • Internships will be full-time for a period of 3 months and can occur in the Fall, Winter, or Summer academic quarters. Recently graduated students are also eligible to be part of the GSICE program. They will have more flexibility as to the start and length of their internships.

  • GSICE is currently looking for graduate student internship opportunities in many areas including: research in biotech/pharma; business relating to science; lawscience policy; science communication and science education.
