The SRF Graduate Internship Program offers graduate students the chance to strengthen research and communication skills, while experiencing an alternative research environment in industry. The goal of the Graduate Internship Program includes assignments and training that focus on presentation skills and leadership. Graduate interns will be tasked with conducting research on ending age-related disease under the guidance of one of our intramural scientific mentors.
One of the most influential moments during a graduate student’s development is the moment when they decide whether to pursue a career in academia or industry; and they make this decision with only half the information they need. Most graduate students have no research experience outside of academia. To address this need, the SRF Graduate Internship Program is designed to give students a look into the world of research in a non-academic setting, while intellectually contributing to our goal of ending aging.
During this program, participants will have the opportunity to train technically and intellectually alongside worldclass scientists and will attend regular programming that is focused on scientific communication skills. Our diverse set of academic programs gives graduate students a chance to interact with other students of all levels, which encourages every level of communication and collaboration.
SRF Education sets itself apart from many other training programs with its focus on the development of scientific communication skills in addition to enhancing laboratory and critical thinking skills. Over the course of its educational programs, participants are guided through practical writing assignments that simulate documents scientists are often asked to produce, such as grant proposals. The communication training culminates in a formal presentation at a symposium where participants present the results of their work to their peers and mentors.
