BASF Summer Internship

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering is excited to announce an opportunity for a summer internship at BASF in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The paid 10-12 week internship program provides chemical engineers the chance to work at one of the world’s leading chemical companies and gain valuable international experience. BASF can play host to a small number of UW-Madison students. We are seeking students who have completed at least their third year of the CBE curriculum (even more advanced students preferred)and a have strong interest in gaining some work experience in the chemical industry.

BASF has many international employees at the Ludwigshafen site, so peaking fluent German is not required for the position. English is spoken regularly within the BASF workplace and is widely spoken throughout the country. However, being able to understand and speak some simple everyday German will enhance your summer experience. If you currently do not know any German a willingness to learn some basics before your internship will be encouraged.

This program will also involve visits to the nearby University of Stuttgart, where our department has had a long-standing exchange program at the graduate level.

If you are interested in hearing more about this exciting opportunity please attend an information session about the program:

Date: Wednesday January 26th, 2011

Time: Noon-1:00 p.m.

Location: 3609 Engineering Hall

At the information session we will provide you with more information about BASF, the internship, and life in Germany.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable work experience and spend a paid summer in Europe. We encourage all of you to apply.

If you are unable to attend and are interested in applying for one of the positions please fill out an online application:

Thank you,

Prof. James Rawlings, Prof. Harmon Ray, and Andrew Greenberg
