The intern will primarily run benchtop lab experiments in improving current Unilever products. The company has projects in mind (things like changing chemical ratios in products, adding new chemicals to products, trying new technologies, etc) that are simple but necessary. Interns experiment with these ideas all summer long and present their findings at the end.

An R&D intern is assigned one project that is important to the current R&D needs. Internship projects could be anything from helping to redevelop a formulation to improve sensory or claims to working as an engineer in the pilot plant to even developing demos to explain our technology to customers and consumers. All of the projects are important to the business and the majority of projects will continue on after the intern leaves. The intern will be able to make most of the decisions, with guidance from the managers, mentors, and other employees who's work might overlap. In addition to working on the project, interns also get to learn about other areas of the business and other roles within R&D.
