The QC2 lab at USM, known for supporting quality control testing and research for craft brewers, seeks motivated interns for a unique summer internship program. Undergraduate science students will get an opportunity through this internship program to apply their science knowledge and lab skills to supporting quality control (QC) testing programs at breweries in the GreaterPortland area. Interns will train with the QC2 lab team on common QC lab testing techniques and then work with a local brewery to support their quality control testing program by performing testing in the brewery and coordinating testing with the QC2 lab.
These will vary between breweries and will be assigned by the brewery and the QC2 lab during training.
Internships will begin in mid-May with a two-week training period in the QC2 lab where they will learn about the brewing process, be trained on important lab techniques and instrumentation, and learn how the testing results are used in a brewery setting. After training students will be matched with a brewery to begin their internship. Students may come to the QC2 lab from time to time to run tests.
