Neurona offers visiting scientist and two internship programs.
Visiting Scientist Program
Neurona’s Visiting Scientist Program provides the opportunity for PhD graduates and scientists early in their careers to conduct cutting-edge research and to help build novel cell therapies for neurological disorders. Visiting Scientists will apply their prior training to Neurona’s scientific programs, be immersed in new fields of study, and receive unique training to further develop their research skills and expertise. Visiting Scientists also benefit from experiencing the drug development process and the biotechnology industry firsthand. Another component of the program is the opportunity for Visiting Scientists to share cultural experiences with Neurona employees that complement the cultural enrichment experienced by working and living in the culturally diverse San Francisco Bay Area. Visiting Scientist positions are temporary in nature, and the company can assist with visa sponsorship, if needed. Visiting Scientist positions do not constitute permanent employment with the company.
Summer Diversity Internship Program
Neurona offers a paid annual Summer Diversity Internship Program. We partner with directors of the MESA (mathematics, engineering, science and achievement) programs at local community and state colleges to request applications from their undergrad and post-bachelor’s students. Interns are paired with a Neurona employee, trained in relevant laboratory techniques, and guided to perform a summer research project. Interns attend weekly scientific and career-development seminars. At the end of the summer, interns have the opportunity to present their research findings to the company. Our goal is to help build diversity in the sciences.
Neurona offers undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to intern in our Discovery Research, Process Sciences Manufacturing, and Preclinical Development Departments. The duration of the paid internship program is flexible, typically 3 - 12 months. You will have an opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry to help develop novel cell therapies for the treatment of neurological disorders. Interns attend weekly scientific and career-development seminars. At the end of the program, interns have the opportunity to present their research findings to the company.
