Procter & Gamble’s Doctoral Recruiting Program Accepting Applications for Internships

Many graduate students will put their head down and successfully plow through their graduate research program in 4-6 years. At the end of their graduate career, many may still be asking themselves the following questions:
  • What can I do with my PhD outside academia?
  • How can I make myself competitive in today’s job market?
  • Do I prefer fundamental research, applied research, or a combination of both? 
The Procter & Gamble doctoral internship program, a 20+ year old program, is designed to answer these very questions for STEM graduate students before completion of their graduate studies. Most specifically, our internships will allow students to:
  • Explore career options by giving them an inside look into an industrial research culture;
  • Build their resume by supplementing their graduate research experience; and
  • Demonstrate how they can apply their expertise and skills for real world applications.
Procter & Gamble’s Doctoral Recruiting Program is currently accepting applications for a limited number of internship opportunities for students pursuing Ph.D.s in most Engineering (all disciplines), Chemistry (all disciplines), Life Sciences (all disciplines), Mathematical Science, Material Science, Veterinary Science, and Nutrition. The program is a paid, full time summer internship at our Cincinnati, OH or Boston, MA research facilities. The preferred period for the 10 to 12 week internship is June 1 to September 1. At P&G, Intern sessions are considered temporary employment, with a predicted ending point. No full-time employment commitments are made; however, depending on satisfactory completion of certain criteria, candidates may be considered for full-time positions upon obtaining their PhD.
