Outreach Scienteens Lab

Internships

The Scienteens Lab offers short internships (one or two weeks) for highly motivated high-school students. Depending on the availabilities of the researchers, the duration of the internship as well as the interests of the student, these internships can either focus on research, science communication or both. Internships are available in three disciplines: biology, mathematics and physics.

  • Internships focusing on scientific research are organised by the Scienteens Lab team in collaboration with research groups from the University of Luxembourg. They allow students to discover the inner workings of a lab, to meet experienced researchers and to learn more about the type of work they do.
  • Internships focusing on science communication allow students to discover different aspect of the daily life of a science communicator: from developing a science outreach activity for a specific audience to writing for diverse communication materials.

Mathematics

The internships in mathematics are organised in collaboration with research groups from the Department of Mathematics (DMATH) of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine. They can be conducted in English, French or German.

Dr Thierry Meyrath.

Biology

The internships in biology are organised in collaboration with research groups from the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) and from the Department of Life Science and Medicine (DLSM) of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine. They are designed for high-school students aged 15 and over. They can be conducted in English or German.

Physics

The internships in physics are done in
collaboration with research groups from the Department of Physics and Material Science (DPhyMS) of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine. They are organised at specific times during school holidays and are only conducted in English.

Interested in an internship? Check out the internships offered in 2024 (see below) and specify one or several internships you are interested in. If you apply for multiple internships, please indicate your order of preference.

    Looking for a specific topic in Life Sciences?

    For high-school students interested in Life Sciences who wish to do an internship within a specific research group or on a given scientific topic, it is advised to directly contact the researcher in charge of the group or working in the field of interest. You can find more information on the different disciplines and topics studied at the University of Luxembourg on the webpages of the faculties and interdisciplinary centres:
