Summer Internships

Explore your passion here.

The Ultragenyx summer internship is a dynamic 10-12 week program for students interested in the field of science/biotechnology. You’ll work as a member of a project team in research, commercial, medical affairs, clinical, regulatory, or a business area, and gain hands-on experience while making a measurable contribution to your assigned department. As an Ultragenyx intern, you’ll receive the guidance and support you need to advance your academic and professional success.


All positions will show specific qualifications for educational level and experience. In general, summer interns at Ultragenyx must have completed at minimum, their freshman year of college, 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 full-time for the entire duration of the summer intern program.


Interns are paid a competitive hourly rate, however students applying credits towards their degree will not receive compensation. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation and housing for the summer, and are not eligible for employee benefits. Please note that our annual Summer Shutdown impacts working hours, typically meaning a week off toward the middle of the program, though this can vary based on project need.


Internships post in December of the previous year and run through the end of January. Interview timing varies by position from December through March. Internships begin in mid to late June and run through the end of August, though timing can vary by department.
