Vertex Pharmaceuticals Vertex in Boston is looking for a few good chemists for internships within the Chemistry this summer. They have four projects planned in the area of synthetic organic chemistry in a medicinal chemistry environment: 2 synthesis projects, one photochemistry methodology project and one in biomimetic oxidation. Internships typically run from mid-May to mid-August and we ideally look for juniors with solid lab experience and an interest in the pharmaceutical industry, though we would consider any strong, motivated candidates. Vertex is situated in an attractive new facility on the Boston waterfront, making for an exciting location to spend the summer. Click here to learn about internship opportunities.
