DuPont Industrial Biosciences believes strongly in supporting future generations. We’ve developed several opportunities for students to gain the valuable experience they’ll need to succeed in today’s demanding job market.
Our R&D Center in Palo Alto, California offers an intensive 13-week science internship program, in which interns develop a science project and take part in a variety of learning activities. You won’t spend your summer in just a single department or lab – DuPont Industrial Biosciences interns get exposure to a broad range of scientific disciplines. At the end of the program you’ll deliver a presentation of your ideas and findings, developing invaluable real-life skills.
We also offer internships in our technical marketing and applied innovations teams, for both undergraduates and those pursuing their post-graduate degrees. Students gain valuable experience in our unique industry, and work on relevant projects that provide immediate value to the business teams. Successful interns are first on our candidate list should a position open that matches their skills. Some of our most successful employees began their careers as interns at DuPont Industrial Biosciences!
The Operations organization offers internships in a variety of areas, providing hands-on opportunities to learn, develop and contribute to the organization. For example, internships in our engineering area give students the opportunity to manage a project designed to improve our production process and lower our organizational costs. Throughout the project, interns present summaries sharing what they have learned and ideas for improvement with the rest of the organization.
