The National Cancer Institute (NCI), the largest of the 27 institutes and centers comprising the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is the Federal Government’s principal agency for cancer research and training.  The NCI coordinates the National Cancer Program, which conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer, rehabilitation from cancer, and the continuing care of cancer patients and the families of cancer patients.

The HCIP gives highly qualified graduate students and recent graduate degree recipients the opportunity to participate in vital health and science communications projects in one of the many offices that make up the NCI.  Interns will select an area of emphasis: health communications or science writing.  Six-month and one-year internship terms are offered.

The NIH main campus is located in Bethesda, Maryland.  HCIP interns are placed in offices located in Bethesda or Rockville, Maryland.  Both locations are accessible via public transportation.

Applicants must meet the following qualifications to be considered eligible for the HCIP:

  • US Citizen or US permanent resident (Alien Registration number is required for US permanent residents).
  • Currently enrolled in, or a recent graduate of, graduate school. If a recent graduate, graduate degree must have been awarded no more than two years prior to application deadline.
  • Undergraduate GPA of 2.75 (minimum) for applicants who have not yet received a Master’s degree.
  • Some science background and experience and/or education.

HCIP interns work full-time (40-hours per week) from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, with a 30-minute lunch break. Changes in schedule must be approved by the intern’s supervisor.

HCIP interns are paid a monthly training stipend through a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA). The amount of your monthly stipend will be based on your undergraduate GPA, your highest earned degree, and your relevant post-degree experience. You will earn exactly 1/12 of your annual stipend rate per month.

Deadline is March 4, 2014.
