The Scienteens Lab also offers one week internships within the research groups of the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB). Intended for highly motivated high-school students, those internships will allow them to learn more about scientific research (scientific method, lab work, bioinformatics, modelling, etc.), to discover the inner-workings of a lab and to work alongside experienced researchers.


Find below the list of internships for high-school students for the year 2020-2021.
Interested in one of these internships? Send your CV and letter of motivation to Dr Maren Krüger.

Internships 2020-2021

Identifying molecules and pollutants in the environment

Internship within the Environmental Cheminformatics Group lead by Assoc. Prof. Emma Schymanski.

Internship period: upcoming summer or autumn holidays
Language: English

The research focus of the group is using experimental and computational mass spectrometry tools to understand different scientific questions that can range from identifying unknown molecules in a biological system or discovering new pollutants in environmental matrices.

During the internship, the student will get the chance to:
- work in the laboratory and learn how water samples are processed for contaminant analyses,
- observe how environmental samples are analyzed using mass spectrometry,
- help analyze data generated to identify contaminants in the water,
- understand the fate and transport of environmental contaminants and how these can have potential negative effects on human health.

Requirements: The group welcomes students interested in both experimental and computational approaches to understanding chemical pollution. Interest in the environmental sciences is a plus.
