Administrative Assistant III (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – July 1, 2015
Learned about submitting grants to NIH and Private Non-Profit agencies. I loved this part of my job. I also was responsible for proof reading and editing the technical writing of the grant application. I also managed the lab, negotiating prices of equipment.
Post Postdoctoral Research Associate (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – November 30, 2014
TSRI is the state-of-the art scientific facilities. It is one of the largest private research institutes in the US. Many Nobel Laureates here. You have the opportunities to work with the best and brightest young scientists. It is easy to publish high profile paper here because your work is based on high platform. I learned new technologies that I never had chance to touch before. Many postdoc here so people is kind of equal.
a lot to learn, feel independent, amazing sciences, nice place to live
Great workplace in the midst of beautiful Florida green lawns
Research Associate (Current Employee) – Jupiter, FL – October 6, 2014
TSRI is an institute of repute, however being a small offshoot of the campus at La Jolla it is still evolving and find the best working formula, in terms of collaborations and facilities. The scientific community consists of young talented postdocs and young PIs which are all self driven and enthusiastic.
good place to have collaboration with chemistry
little away from the major cities and malls and shops
Technician Specialist (Current Employee) – La Jolla, CA – September 12, 2014
What I appreciate about TSRI (The Scripps Research Institute) is that I got to learn a lot of technical work, and I am able to do that on a regular basis, learn about many species, able to work with multiple species (Mice, rats, rabbits, frogs, chickens, and primates). I supervise 3 washrooms and 1 facility with a crew of 7. At one time i was managing total of 16 people. So I have to multitask and mange my time between places and that makes the days go by fast. I enjoy my co-workers, we all work hard with little supervision. The hardest part of my job is that sometimes I care and think about my job when I am not working.
healthcare, free lunches at times, going to seminars
Truly a great and excellent research and science related firm.
Security Dispatcher/Lead Officer (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – February 5, 2014
If you enjoy science or research in large firm then you will love working here.Located in beautiful Southern Ca only adds to the real enjoyment of the job. The professors and department heads at this firm truly do invest care and they do demonstrate respect to their employees. Yes, most positions here come with an excellent benefits package! Also, you might like to know that this firm also has yet another large( separate) science research facility in Jupiter Florida...amazing how one company can exist in two different states (Florida and California) at the same time.

Research Assistant I (Current Employee) – La Jolla, CA – March 6, 2013
Worked over time to carry out my own experiments and meeting deadlines, while multi-tasking my primary duties such a vivarium upkeep, genotyping transgenic mice, and ELISAs on mouse serum samples. Learned new molecular techniques and column chromatography. Managed lab supplies, vivarium, and mouse database. Assisted post docs with molecular techniques for their experiment.

Most enjoyable part of the job is learning new techniques and speaking with intelligent scientists.
Research Associate - Postdoctoral Scholar (Current Employee) – Jupiter, Florida – March 27, 2014
It is a good place to work. I typically start around 8.30 am almost every day. Have learnt a lot of science from daily research activities. My co-workers are also great. The hardest part of the job sometimes to get motivated. The most enjoyable part of work is the gatherings with fellow workers.
Research Assistant IV/ Lab Manager (Former Employee) – Jupiter, FL – June 17, 2013
A typical day at work consisted of tissue culture, management of the lab,and cell based screens. I learned a tremendous amount about starting up a lab and facility. The management of the institute was from California and it was a little difficult without them on site. My coworkers were really great,talented people devoted to the research. The hardest part about working there was that the permanent site for the institute was challenged in court and had to be abandoned. The uncertainty of this issue was a bit overwhelming. The most enjoyable part of the jobs was working with some really amazing people.
good science and new equipment
site issue and the temporary facility was not top notch
Research Technician (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – March 26, 2013
Challenging and non routine day to day job that offers flexible hours. A typical day of work would be divided between bench work on Molecular biology/Biochemistry experiments and Tissue culture work. People from all over the world work at Scripps. This creates a nice multicultural experience.
flexible hours and decent benefits
conpensation is not that high and lay offs happen often.
This is a great place to work for. The HR is great and very organized. The benefits are very good and the compensation. The Scientific community of this institute is astonishing and working under the guidance of any member will 100 fold elevate your experience and work.
