We offer internship opportunities in the fields of biological/life-sciences, physical sciences (bio-physics & formulation sciences) and chemistry. The lab & project that you will be working on depends on your field of study/expertise, and will be on a fundamental or applied science project related to generating new scientific knowledge in skin or hair (biology/life-sciences, biophysics, analytical chemistry) or a new chemical entity (chemistry) or a new formula chassis/galenic (formulation sciences) related to the cosmetics and beauty industry.

We are looking for a highly motivated undergraduate to work as an intern in L’Oréal Advanced Research labs (locations detailed below). Our two most fundamental organs of study are on the skin and the hair.
