Rosser to Support the Alabama Bioscience Community

BIO Alabama welcomes Master of Biotechnology student  into it’s summer/fall internship program, a program for college students who are intrinsically curious about Alabama’s bioscience industry and are motivated to promote the intellectual and innovative capital that make our state a premier place to invest, start, and grow in bioscience. 

Austin Rosser, a Master of Biotechnology student from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, was recently accepted to BIO Alabama’s summer/fall internship program. 

“Finishing my Master of Biotechnology degree during a global pandemic amplified the importance of my degree and my chosen field,” said Austin Rosser. “I’m fortunate to be transitioning into the paid workforce, but volunteer work is equally important to me. BIO Alabama provides an incredible opportunity to expand my skill set, build my network, and contribute to our expanding bioscience community in a meaningful way.”  

Rosser will spend the rest of his summer and early fall conducting research on tactics, techniques, and strategies that will help BIO Alabama develop an economic development roadmap focused on business attraction and retention, workforce development, and startup and tech transfer within the bioscience community. He will assist in collecting, compiling, and translating data into a consumable report. The final report will be presented at BIO Alabama’s annual conference in October. 

“It’s an incredible time to be involved in Alabama’s bioscience community and we’re thrilled that Austin chose to volunteer with us even though classes were coming to an end,” said Sonia Robinson, Executive Director of BIO Alabama. “BIO Alabama has a number of initiatives underway including the development of our strategic economic development roadmap and virtual annual conference. Having Austin’s energy and enthusiasm will help us deliver a robust plan as well as curate an annual conference designed to surprise and delight our attendees,” Robinson adds.

BIO Alabama provides remote internship opportunities throughout the year and is now accepting cover letters and resumes for fall internship and annual conference ambassador opportunities. Interested students may email their cover letter and resume to  In addition to BIO Alabama, a number of bioscience companies across the state welcome interns. Interested students may contact BIO Alabama for more information.

Interns support the executive director in further connecting our bioscience ecosystem. Internships with BIO Alabama are for college credit and follow the college or university's internship guidelines including minimum hour requirements and deliverables.
