Position description

The primary purpose of the Undergraduate Internship is to provide an intern with relevant field experiences in their chosen field of study. One or more mentors will be assigned to the intern to provide instruction, guidance and to assess performance. The intern is responsible for observing the functions and processes of the assigned work unit. In addition, the intern may be given selected work assignments to reinforce the learning experience, to assess the performance levels and to provide benefit to the work unit. The intern will be responsible for completing all internship-related assignments and reports for both Mayo and the participating educational facility. The duration and timing of the internship will be arranged with the intern and the sponsoring educational facility.

The position involves working in a gastroenterology laboratory focused on understanding physiology and how microbes affect motility, secretion and permeability of the intestinal tract. The group routinely works with human samples and mice to understand the interplay between the host and microbes. Commonly used techniques include microbial isolation, culturing, mice gavage, in vivo studies in mice models, isolation of organs for ex vivo analysis, and imaging. The candidate will work in sync with post-doctoral fellows and will obtain guidance from them. They will get an opportunity to understand and learn translational science with projects having mechanistic focus ultimately to develop therapies for intestinal disorders like irritable bowel syndrome. Enthusiasm towards understanding gastrointestinal biology is a must and any prior experience in that space would be desirable but not necessary.

This is a temporary position with an anticipated duration of one year.
