Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Regenerative Sciences Institute (RSI) is accepting applications for our Biotechnology Internship Program.
Volunteer interns will have the rare opportunity to be instructed by senior investigators in molecular and synthetic biology and biotechnology research related to the AMRITA initiative focused on enhancing regeneration and genetic reprogramming. Research will involve application of synthetic and molecular biology techniques to the discovery of basic regeneration mechanisms and the development of regenerative medicine therapies. Interns will be expected to commit at least 30 hours/week for at least 1 year. This is a volunteer position, so no compensation is available. At the successful completion of this program, interns will have achieved a working knowledge of molecular and synthetic biology techniques, mammalian cell culture and the research methodology sufficient to enter into the biotechnology industry. Depending on the project scope, techniques may include: Cas9/CRISPR, AAV, lentivirus, Gibson cloning, gene assembly, synthetic biology, tissue culture, stem cell culture, and iPS cell culture. Our former interns have pursued careers in medicine, scientific research and industry. We only have an opening every few years. The internship is sponsored by Regenerative Sciences Institute (RSI), a non-profit academic research organization in the heart of the Silicon Valley in Sunnyvale, CA. RSI has a close working relationship with PRI, a leading biotech incubator in the SF Bay area. To apply, please submit a resume with any pertinent information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
