Critical support for these scientists’ research is provided everyday by baccalaureate-level technicians, undergraduate laboratory assistants, maintenance technicians, animal husbandry personnel, and administrative staff of varying specialties. The Institute provides unique outreach experiences for volunteers and interns who have an interest in biomedical related fields.
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, the Salk Institute offers a warm, collegial and collaborative work environment, where employees enjoy a generous benefits program. Social activities on campus encourage interaction as a community.
