Careers

  • See the CC Career Center for advice and job postings. Also see Careerthoughts.com .  
  • For pre-med, pre-dent, pre-PA, etc., see CC Health Professions Advising 
  • In Biology, see:
    • Shane Heschel for advice on careers and/or graduate school related to OEE, and lab jobs in evolutionary biology and physiology.
    • Darrell Killian for advice on careers and/or graduate school related to MCB including cell/molecular/developmental biology.
    • Joe Koke - same as Darrell Killian, but in addition has contacts in Biotechnology, Bioengineering, and Material Science.  Dr. Koke also has former students that are now professors in several academic institutions, who frequently are looking for bright, motivated students to join their lab as graduate students.

Internships

The Biology Department hosts two listservs, which list internships (mostly summer), research opportunities (mostly summer), and graduate school opportunities.

Ornithological jobs lists avian jobs online or join the bird jobs listserv: http://www.osnabirds.org

EVINTERNSHIPS lists ecology, field & lab biology, conservation, and evolutionary biology opportunities: http://listserv.coloradocollege.edu/archives/HTML/EVINTERNSHIPS.HTML 

LABJOBS contains lab biology opportunities to subscribe or to unsubscribe from one of these listservs: http://listserv1.coloradocollege.edu/archives/LABJOBS.HTML

If you want to change the email address to which the postings are sent, unsubscribe with the old address and subscribe with the new address.

REU "Research Experiences for Undergraduates" Opportunities & Programs: www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/index.jsp Applications for these opportunities are usually due in February.
