About the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station

The Florida Agricultural Experiment Station (FAES) is the research program of The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS). Our mission is to discover new scientific knowledge, encourage innovative study, and create applications based on sound science that address challenges facing agriculture, natural resources, and human systems. Experiment Station faculty are located on the Gainesville campus and at Research and Education Centers across Florida. The Experiment Station has more than 450 active research projects. Each project has specific goals and objectives that our interns help accomplish under the supervision of a faculty member. Paid internship opportunities are available during the summer semester, but volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year.

NOTE: Unpaid, volunteer positions may also be available. Please contact the faculty member you are interested in working with to inquire about those opportunities.
