We have compiled here a list of tips written by several M2 students. They’ll be happy to give further advice, their emails are at the end of this section. You are more important (for you) than any Principal Investigator (PI), laboratory or scientific project. So first: think about your priorities. Choose your internships based on them. For example, if during this year you want to learn the maximum and do it having fun, think about 3 totally different labs and be sure that you get along with the PI and with the team. If the atmosphere is bad, nobody will tell you (or rarely) “don’t come here !”, but if people are not saying “we are having a great time here, we love our lab”, it might be an indication….
The more labs you visit the better for you! It means experience in interviews, networking, learning a lot about what is happening in Paris science, tuning what you want, need and appreciate!
