Mariella Mecozzi, Senior Assistant Director

MARIELLA'S PICK: Research Intern - Cell Biology at Zoetis
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 31st, 2020 

Attention CMB majors! If you are looking for a research position in cellular biology for this summer, you may wish to check this one out.

This posting caught my attention because although the position is based in Fort Collins, CO, I had the pleasure of visiting Zoetis in Kalamazoo, MI a few years ago and was very impressed with their commitment to global animal health.

The fact that they will accept applications from current sophomores was a plus in my mind since I believe this internship could be a great fit for anyone interested in building their research skills ⏤ and a particularly special opportunity for pre-vet students.
