Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 Summer Department of Energy (DOE) Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI), Community College Internship (CCI) and Visiting Faculty (VF) programs!
If you are aware of students or faculty that may be interested in a summer internship (dates are June2 – August 8, 2014), please have them visit http://science.energy.gov/wdts/ to apply or obtain additional information! The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. ET on January 10 – applications received after this time WILL NOT be considered for placement. Summer appointments are 10 weeks in duration and selected applicants must be available to participate for the entire appointment period.
The SULI program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers by providing research experiences at DOE laboratories. The Community College Internship (CCI) program seeks to encourage community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE laboratories. The Visiting Faculty (VF) program seeks to increase the research competitiveness of faculty members and their students at institutions historically underrepresented in the research community in order to expand the workforce vital to the DOE mission areas.
NOTE: If you are interested in an internship opportunity through this program in my lab directly I will probably be accepting one or two with interests in microbial ecology and/or soil biogeochemistry. Please drop me an email (schadtcw at ornl dot gov) when you complete your application so that I know to specifically look for your application amongst the 100s in the overall program which ranges from ecology to particle physics!
