Get Involved: 2013 SENS Summer Internships — Do scientific research to end aging
If you’re looking for a SENS summer internship application, you can find it here.
SENS Research Foundation operates a student program, SRF Education, focused on rejuvenation biotechnologies. The SENS summer internship program is for undergraduates (students working towards a Bachelor’s degree) and students who have just completed their undergraduate work offered by SENS Education.
According to the SENS site:, “As an intern in the program, you can expect to do scientific research almost full-time, using a variety of techniques in the biosciences. These might include 3PCR, western blotting, gel electrophoresis, subcloning, transforming and transfecting cells, cell culturing, and the like. The work you do will be directly related to regenerative medicine or the biology of aging. You’ll also get to practice your presentation skills: at the end of your internship, you’ll create and present a poster on the work you’ve done.”
Applicants will have a beter chance if they already have some laboratory experience. In 2013, SENS will be placing summer interns at four different locations.
SRF’s Research Center in Mountain View, CA
Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato, CA
Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, NC
SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY
Students may apply to all four of these locations at the same time using the application here.
Contact SENS for additional information. Each program will run on its own schedule, with its own stipend and arrangements.
