Department of Energy National Lab Virtual Internship Career Fair
Are you an undergraduate in science, technology, engineering or math looking for a research opportunity at a Department of Energy National Laboratory?
The next step in your search is just a click away!
Join us from 12-3 p.m. EST Thursday, October 24, 2019, for the Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) Virtual Career Fair and discover opportunities to participate in the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program and the Community College Internships (CCI) program at several participating labs/facilities!
During the Virtual Career Fair, you can interact with recruiters, scientists, and researchers; explore information about each laboratory; and learn about the SULI and CCI experiences.
Participating labs/facilities include:
- Ames Laboratory (AL): A materials-focused Department of Energy laboratory located on the campus of Iowa State University.
- Argonne National Laboratory (ANL): A science and engineering research national laboratory located near Lemont, Illinois, outside Chicago. It is the largest national laboratory by size and scope in the Midwest. Its diverse and dynamic research agenda spans 16 research divisions, 12 centers, and 5 national user facilities.
- Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL): Delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation’s future. Primarily supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science, Brookhaven Lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory with seven Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, 36 R&D 100 Awards, and more than 70 years of pioneering research.
- Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL): A lab specializing in high-energy particle physics located just outside Batavia, Illinois, near Chicago.
- General Atomics DIII-D (GA-DIII-D): General Atomics operates the DIII-D National User Facility, the nation's largest magnetic fusion experiment, to advance plasma and fusion science. Also, General Atomics fabricates targets for Inertial Fusion experiments carried out at other facilities in the US.
- Idaho National Laboratory (INL): The nation’s lead laboratory for nuclear energy research, development, demonstration and deployment. It is engaged in the mission of ensuring the nation’s energy security with safe, competitive, and sustainable energy systems, and unique national and homeland security capabilities.
- Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL): Conducts research which ensures the safety, security and reliability of the nation's nuclear weapons through the application of advanced science, engineering and technology. The Laboratory also applies its special expertise and multidisciplinary capabilities to preventing the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction, bolstering homeland security and solving other nationally important problems, including energy and environmental security, basic science and economic competitiveness.
- Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL): A multidisciplinary research facility in fields such as national security, space exploration, nuclear fusion, renewable energy, medicine, nanotechnology, and supercomputing. Located northwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico and south of Los Alamos, it was initially organized during World War II.
- National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL): A specialized lab in renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development located in Golden, Colorado. NREL advances the science and engineering of energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and renewable power technologies, and it provides the knowledge to integrate and optimize energy systems.
- Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL): The largest science and energy laboratory located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. ORNL conducts basic and applied research to deliver transformational solutions to compelling problems in energy and security. With a long history of welcoming students and faculty into its ranks for educational experiences, ORNL annually hosts 3,200 visiting researchers, 1,300 of these through its relationship with ORISE. ORNL has a long history of participating in DOE’s education programs, including the SULI and CCI programs, which serve more than 150 students and faculty each year.
- Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL): DOE's premier chemistry, environmental sciences, and data analytics national laboratory. It is also home to the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL), one of DOE's scientific user facilities. In FY 2017, its 4,486 scientists, engineers, and professionals were joined by 1,200 students and teachers who immersed themselves in laboratory research experiences through programs offered to high school, undergraduate and graduate students, as well as hands-on opportunities for post-doctoral fellows and educators.
- Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL): A multi-program national laboratory for the DOE Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM). SRNL puts science to work to protect the nation by providing practical, cost-effective solutions for the nation’s environmental, nuclear security, energy and manufacturing challenges.
- Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (TJNAF): Jefferson Lab conducts a broad program of research using electromagnetic interaction to probe the structure of the nucleon (protons and neutrons), the production and decay of light mesons, and aspects of the interactions of nucleons in the atomic nucleus. The main tools they use are the scattering of electrons and the creation and utilization of high energy real photons.
Please note that these opportunities are only for undergraduate students and recent graduates attending accredited U.S. institutions who are U.S. citizens or Legal Permanent Residents.
