Summer Internships

The summer internship is a 10 to 12 week program for all eligible students interested in the field of science/biotechnology. Ultragenyx hosts interns for all interested groups across the company. Working as a member of a project team in research, commercial, clinical, regulatory, or a business area, interns are given clearly defined responsibilities and project scopes.

Interns have the chance to gain practical hands-on experience and make a measurable contribution to an assigned department based on current business goals. We give you the guidance and support you need to succeed and provide an excellent environment for academic and career growth.


At a minimum, summer interns at Ultragenyx must have completed their freshman/first year of college. To be eligible for an internship, candidates must be enrolled as a full-time student and have plans to return to school in the following term. All interns must be available to work the entire duration of the summer intern program. Student interns must be available to work 40 hours per week, in general.  


Interns are paid a competitive hourly rate, unless credits can be applied towards degree. Students will be responsible for providing their own transportation and housing for the summer. Interns are ineligible for employee benefits.
