CETI - Internships

The Career Exploration Through Internships (CETI) program at UC Davis allows graduate students to do internships in a broad range of career settings beyond academic research/teaching. The goal of CETI is to provide UC Davis graduate students with hands-on experience in appropriate career environments in order to help them make informed decisions about which of the many career paths to pursue post graduation. The Career Exploration Through Internships (CETI) program consists of two main components: the CETI training component and the CETI internship.

  • Internships are open to students in the following programs: Biomedical Engineering, Comparative Pathology, Food Science, Immunology, Integrative Genetics and Genomics, Neuroscience, Pharmacology & Toxicology, Plant Biology and Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Physiology.  
  • Students eligible for internships will be advanced graduate students (at minimum having passed all their doctoral qualifying exams).
  • Internships will be full-time for a period of 3 months and can occur in the fall, winter, or summer academic quarters. Recently graduated students are also eligible to be part of the CETI program. They will have more flexibility as to the start and length of their internships.
  • CETI is currently looking for graduate student internship opportunities in several areas including: research in biotech/pharma/food science; business relating to science; intellectual property; regulatory affairs; science policy; science communication and science education.
