Junior Scientist Internships

Are you a high school student in NYC with a passion for science exploration and an interest in gaining research and teaching experience? In the BioBus Junior Scientist Programs, Junior Scientists receive training and mentorship from research scientists, while developing their own independent projects and co-teaching BioBus programs to younger students! Junior Scientists are paid by the hour! Our internships are housed in Harlem (available to students city-wide), and Downtown (available to Lower East Side and Chinatown students).


The 2022-23 Downtown Junior Scientist Internship application is now live!

Please see Frequently Asked Questions for eligibility requirements and details!


Application deadline is June 1, 2022



Other BioBus Junior Scientist Programs


The health and safety of our students and staff is always our priority, and we are closely monitoring the state of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we hope to return to a fully in-person internship, it is possible that the Junior Scientist Program will include remote components.
