Employment in the Massachusetts biotech industry is expected to grow by about 17 percent in the five years ending May 2022, according to a recent forecast by MassBioEd. Where will these new workers come from? Will they have the experience they need to immediately contribute to our expanding industry?
Project Onramp is one way that Massachusetts life sciences companies can ensure they can tap a local source of experienced talent as they advance their pipelines and mature.
We are looking for paid internships in hard science and in business disciplines, including marketing, communications, HR and administration. Offering Project Onramp internships is an investment in your industry’s future, by offering talented low-income students a way to learn about a career in the life sciences. Financial support from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center can subsidize each intern’s salary up to $8,160 per summer, for companies of fewer than 100 employees.
Learn more about Project Onramp and how our carefully screened and curated applicants help your firm grow now and in the future. Please contact Program Coordinator Lila Neel: Lila@lifesciencecares.org.
Project Onramp is ready to break down barriers and speed low-income students to success—while helping our member companies build the statewide labor pool and boost diversity.
