Paragon One is collaborating with Cargill Health Technologies to bring you an experiential learning program focused on promoting human and animal health.

Work alongside 160,000 Cargill employees addressing underlying health challenges through in vitro and in vivo testing.

What you'll do:

This externship is centered around helping you gain research experience in agriculture and nutrition. We’re offering the opportunity to make a difference! But how?

Working with a fast-paced team, you will study Cargill’s human portfolio to proactively track opportunities that positively impact human health. But this externship doesn’t just focus on the present; through exploratory assessments, students will work to gather data for future developments in human health products. By analyzing botanicals, from the whole product to extracted ingredients, you’ll work with a team to evaluate scientific and clinical evidence for a market’s potential. You’ll work with products that are currently in the market and analyze the investment activity in the space. Your research will help develop Cargill’s human health portfolio and guide new product development approaches. 

Here’s how you’ll be making a difference; during your externship, you’ll:

  • Familiarize yourself with the terminology, concepts, and background involved in the research of the botanical ingredients space. 
  • Research substances and active ingredients extracted from botanicals to identify their applications, claims, and market opportunities.
  • Research clinical trials and scientific discoveries related to substances and active ingredients extracted from botanicals.
  • Identify the market landscape for potential products originated from botanicals, and analyze information about competitor products, brands, companies, etc. 
  • Gather information on product/market traction in terms of sales, investment, or R&D efforts.
  • Create an understanding of how a global food enterprise such as Cargill operates regarding product development and R&D.
  • Create and deliver a compelling presentation showcasing insights into the market landscape, and market viability of a chosen botanical ingredient.
