Adient Internships

Comments Off on Adient Internships

Last Tuesday, Daniel Greenshields (BME, Class of 2014), gave a presentation about his experience with Styker (Kalamazoo, MI) and more recently Adient (Plymouth, MI) , where he is currently a Testing Engineer. It was striking to see the similarities in the job functions at a medical device company and an automotive seat manufacturer. Adient has several internship opportunities listed. Here is one

Co-ops and Internships for Summer 2018

Comments Off on Co-ops and Internships for Summer 2018

Many BME students are interested and have been advised about the importance of internship experiences. However, most probably don’t realize that the time to start looking for an internship /Co-op for summer is now. Also, many companies do no exclusively advertise their internship on normal job websites, leaving it up to students to find out about them from their websites.

Here are just a couple that are just a few that were recently listed. As with many BME opportunities, these are not in Michigan but looking for outside opportunities can really open up many more options.

  • Stryker Internship: 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Ethicon Endo:  1, 2
  • Medtronic: 1, 2

Even if they don’t specifically list BMEs, you may still be able to apply and get the position.

The Naval Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer.

The goals of NREIP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.

NREIP provided competitive research internships to approximately 590 college students last summer. Participating students spend ten weeks during the summer conducting research at approximately 36 DoN laboratories.

NREIP’s Online Application closes on November 30, 2016! Apply Here!

Immediate Internship Position at Beaumont Hospital

Comments Off on Immediate Internship Position at Beaumont Hospital

This was forwarded to me by our alum Michael Newton on behalf of Erin Baker. Please contact directly.


I lead the orthopaedic implant retrieval program at Beaumont Hospital’s Royal Oak, MI campus. Our program is expanding from a 3-hospital to 8-hospital collection this year. I am hoping to hire a Biomedical Engineering student (or similar degree) beginning in June 2016. The position would last through April/May 2017, and the student would be hired as 36-hour/week intern. However, the position may not require 36 hours/week every week.

I am looking for someone who is hands-on and motivated. Ideal candidate has an interest in biomaterials, enjoys microscopy, learning new equipment/techniques, a research lab environment in a hospital setting, writing and other forms of communication (e.g. presentations, abstracts), and working in a small team (our lab/department is staffed by 8 engineers and 2 research coordinators). Biology and/or musculoskeletal anatomy knowledge preferred.

This is a great position for students interested in applying to medical and graduate school, or interested in research careers post-graduation.

Please have any interested student email me directly (erin.baker@beaumont.org<mailto:erin.baker@beaumont.org>), with their resume, cover letter, and a technical writing sample. Interviews will be scheduled immediately.

Thanks,
Erin
