Since its creation, AMI has welcomed a number of undergraduate students who have expressed the desire to get acquainted with a research setting of excellence, get “their hands wet” in lab and quench their thirst for knowledge in the realm of nanomaterials. Short term internships are an ideal springboard to discover the world of research and AMI is committed to providing students with a top-notch environment that will tickle their curiosity and inspire their career. That is why as of 2011, a Summer Program has been formally put together to facilitate this type of visit. Given the high number of applicants, we request of all applicants to provide us with CV, a letter expressing the motivation and two letters of recommendation to ami-applications[at]unifr.ch. A selection committee composed of scientific members of the institute will choose among the candidates to match the available positions at our institute.
