Former SULI intern at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
about 2 years ago
The average day for a SULI intern at PNNL depends on what kind of project you're working on and who you have as an adviser/mentor. My first summer at PNNL was more lab-intensive so I spent most of my days either in the lab or analyzing data in my office. The second summer, on the other hand, was computationally heavy so I had more free time while the simulations were running. Aside from your work, PNNL and the SULI program do an excellent job of getting students familiarized with the facilities on site and the history of the area. You'll have the opportunity to tour a variety of labs and check out some of the historical locations around the Hanford reservation.
