In-line with MBI’s efforts to promote Mechanobiology amongst international students, the Institute hosts a select number of interns each year.
We invite and support a highly-selective number of students who are interested in internships of 3–6 months to Singapore. The MBI administration team takes care of invitations, visas, the administration of modest stipends and introduces interns to meaningful research training programs in the laboratories of their chosen MBI supervisors.
MBI will undertake to provide stipends to interns at the rates suggested below:
Undergraduate Student – S$1,000 per month
Graduate student – S$2,000 per month
The MBI internship team will work with selected candidates to apply for the necessary visa and Training passes for their stay in Singapore
No other benefits will be offered. The intern is to seek his or her own housing and insurance, and undertake all liabilities in connection with his or her stay in Singapore.
