Linda Schenck, a current employee of Dow AgroSciences, suggested that you would be a great contact person to share our intern information with. The internship is a fantastic growth opportunity for undergraduate students, and is well-paid (commensurate with year in school and any relevant research experience). Our R&D intern program has been growing steadily, and we are hoping to receive more internship applications from undergraduate science majors at University of Florida. We would be grateful for any assistance you could provide us toward achieving this goal.
I would like to invite your students to apply to our R&D Summer Intern Program at Dow AgroSciences (http://www.dowagro.com/careers/internships/lab.htm). R&D internships are available in several chemistry, biology and computer science related disciplines, including (but not limited to) biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, microbiology, plant breeding, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, surface chemistry, engineering (chemical, biological, material, or optical) and informatics (bio and chem). All R&D lab-based internships will be located at our global headquarters in Indianapolis, IN and field internships will be located at any one of our 15+ field/breeding stations located throughout the US. This is a paid internship (salary is based on year completed in school and any relevant experience), expecting 40 hour/week work schedules for 10-12 weeks during the summer months. Housing is significantly subsidized and provided to any student whose permanent address is greater than 45 miles from our site. Attached is our brochure, please feel free to print it out, post it or distribute it to your students as you feel necessary.
Please encourage your students to submit electronic resumes and cover letters via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 31, 2011. If you have any questions, please feel free to me via email (email@example.com). Thank you so much for your time.
