The Mayo Clinic Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics in Rochester, Minn., typically employs several undergraduate and graduate interns during the summer. Longer-term internships of six to nine months are also offered based on division needs and funding.

This annual summer program begins in late May or early June (depending on candidate availability) and lasts a minimum of 10 weeks.


Those eligible for the internships we offer include:

  1. Undergraduate students who have completed their junior year. Many of our candidates are seeking degrees in statistics, although we also receive and consider applications from other bachelor-level mathematic programs.
  2. Graduate students who have completed their B.S. degree and are enrolled in a M.S. or Ph.D. statistics program.

Application timeline

Applications for summer 2014 internships will be accepted from Dec. 9, 2013, through Jan. 10, 2014. Applicants will receive notification about their application status by April. Applications for longer-term internships or non-summer internships are accepted throughout the year.
