- Basic background in life sciences, preferably biomedicine, biology, neurobiology
- One full year of undergraduate (2 semesters) completed by the time the internship starts
- High level of English
- Ideally previous lab experience (not a requirement)
- Ability to work independently following a period of elaborative training
- Ability to generate reliable data with the potential for publication
