Our Co-Op program gives students valuable industry experience and exposure to innovative research and technologies.
Co-ops work directly on our research discovery programs, computational platform, technology platform, or with our manufacturing team. Co-ops learn a wide variety of methods pertaining to biochemistry, molecular biology, protein chemistry and cell biology, and are challenged to think creatively and actively participate in “real world” scientific problem solving. Visterra Co-ops are paid positions that generally last 3 to 9 months.
If you are interested in participating in our co-op program, please email email@example.com
“Visterra is dedicated to training and developing young scientists. Our co-op program provides young scientists with not only a strong technical foundation, but also the skills to work effectively and independently. Students who have worked at Visterra have gone on to obtain full time employment in the health sciences industry or have been accepted to prestigious medical/graduate programs. “

“Working at Visterra as a co-op allowed me to gain hands-on industry experience that I would not have otherwise gained in the classroom. Visterra introduced me to a wide variety of important lab skills that cemented my interest in biochemistry. As a co-op, I also developed interpersonal skills by working with a supportive team and having the opportunity to present data and ideas. My positive experience at Visterra encouraged me to pursue a career in the sciences and to return as a full-time employee after college.”
– Nicole Brossi, Sr. Research Associate (former Co-op)
“When I joined, I had basic knowledge and experience in cell culture. Throughout my experience here I have had the chance to learn and use different techniques, technologies, and methods in cell culture. Being introduced to these technologies alone was mind-blowing because I did not even know they existed. This has been a great opportunity to experience the industry side of the biotechnology world and have received all the support I need to continue growing.”
