Research internship

RJSIMRF Research internship provides a short term work experience for an intern (mostly Research students) to enhance their practical knowledge and sometimes to meet the requirements of their degree fulfillment at a place other than their own academic institutions. This short term exposure can be really of great importance for the career establishment of a student in the research sector. One can see the benefits from the moment a student starts to search for a suitable Job. This broadens the outlook of the research students regarding the various available platforms for scientific works worldwide. By surfing through the website of the institutions and reputed companies students get to know a lot of information related to research areas in various places. This immensely encourages the students to be active in the research field as well as industrial applications of research work.

Below mentioned are few points with a brief listing of the definite useful outcome of the Research Internships for a student.

Encourages One for a Research Career:

Research internships can really be a significant exposure to change the career path of Research students and make them realize whether they could continue a career in research throughout their life. Learning through visual sense is much more influential than auditory sense; hence practical knowledge always has a greater significance in humans than only theory based knowledge. The interns get exposure to different industrial processes at a larger scale. In what way the protocol designed in a lab is used to meet the demands at a commercial level. The technology, the instruments used in industries, their principles, and efficiency can inspire them to develop similar equipment for other applications. They are encouraged to think of improvising existing models to enhance methods and production. This motivates a student to search answers for some questions that are still unresolved. To find the solution to problems that are still unsolved. This small experience can lay the foundation for a research career for the students.

Helps Improvise Hands-on skills:

The laboratory provides a platform for the students to experience things as real. This is a great experience for them. Practically many small things are there which may affect the efficiency and accuracy of the result. In the laboratory, the interns learn minute yet useful techniques that are actually helpful to make them expertise at work. The basic lab techniques taught during the research internship program are trained some important instrumentation handling knowledge and get to learn the optimization of instruments, how to handle them properly with care to minimize damage.

Increases Proficiency in Writing:

One of the key skills in a research career is representing your work through research and review papers in various journals. Writing the paper in a proper scientific way to decrease the chance of rejection by editorial boards of journals is a difficult task. So during internship interns are trained to write the papers in formats that are readily accepted. This skill can be enhanced by studying papers of various journals such as Nature publishing group, Cell, Science, PNAS, PLOS, etc that shape up the crude writing ideas of the students into a proper scientific format. Reading these papers also enhance the vocabulary skills of students and gives ideas of work protocols adopted by different laboratories.

Learning proper citation of a reference journal is also a vital thing that is also taught during the internship. For writing the thesis and framing the abstract in the most influential way students are also trained to represent their work. Other research related soft skills such as taking up a specific problem to work on, how to set the objectives, structuring the materials and methods, how to design the experiments, represent data and analysis finally concluding remarks in the form of discussion is also learned during this period.

Helps in Establishing a Strong Professional Network:

Today’s world has definitely shrunk with advanced technologies that enable people to stay connected with each other through networking. But still developing a relation by direct interaction is much stronger than a virtual relationship. During the research Internship period, the intern comes in contact with a lot of people from scientific academic as well as nonacademic backgrounds; this widens the professional network for them. This improves communication skills and enhances knowledge gain through the exchange of ideas and views among interacting people. This broad professional networking is helpful for the establishment of future collaborations.
