2017 Research Summer Internships

The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) is pleased to announce the call for Research Summer Internships with the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station (FAES). This internship program is a cooperative effort between the College of Agricultural Sciences (CALS) and the Experiment Station. Interns will be supervised by an FAES faculty member and will be paid $560 per week ($14 per hour) for six weeks full time, or the hours can be spread out over the summer. This internship program will place a priority on CALS students who have not previously held a research position.

FAES is the research program of UF/IFAS. Our mission is to discover, invent and develop applications of new knowledge in agriculture, human and natural resources. Experiment Station faculty are in Departments on the campus in Gainesville and at Research and Education Centers throughout Florida. The Experiment Station has over 450 active research Projects. Each Project has specific goals and objectives and is led by a faculty member. We are offering you an opportunity to work with one of our faculty during the summer of 2017 to learn about an Experiment Station Research Project and to contribute to the Project.
