The way to apply for VSRP internship is to apply via a project below. We have over 100 projects spanning 16 STEM disciplines, and each project has its own 'Apply' button. Each project is 3 - 6 months long and includes airfares, flights, housing, health insurance and a monthly stipend.
You'll be able to work directly with leading researchers in our state-of-the-art laboratories. We're open to applications from motivated students looking to make an impact on the world. If that sounds like you, find a project below that interests you and continue your journey at KAUST!
New research projects have been added in the following areas:
Environmental Science and Engineering
Earth Science and Engineering
Applied Mathematics and Computational Science

All animals and plants form ‘holobionts’ with a myriad of microorganisms. Accordingly, all organisms have evolved sophisticated immune mechanisms to fight pathogenic microbes, while attracting and nurturing beneficial ones. We use biochemistry, biophysics and structural methods such as X-ray crystallography, small angle X-ray scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance, cryo-electron microscopy and AI-based predictions to reveal the 3D structure of protein complexes involved in controlling the immune system. The student will be embedded in a team of structural biologists and will work on protein production, biophysical and 3D structural analyses. In KAUST we have access to state-of-the art instruments, including last-generation TITAN KRIOS electron microscopes, and high-field NMR; X-ray analysis is performed in France. Prior wet-lab experience would be a plus.
