SACNAS-SHPE- MAES Consortium - U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science PAID Summer Internship Program Available in National Labs located Across the Nation
The Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), and the Society of Mexican American Engineers and Scientists (MAES) have partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science to provide an exciting ten week paid summer undergraduate internship program for thirty talented students. The program aims to deepen research interests and enhance technical skills by exposing young scientists and engineers to the exciting range of opportunities offered through the DOE. The deadline is this Friday, February 1, 2008, for preferred consideration. You may apply after this date, but your chances of selection and placement may be decreased due to the limited number of internship positions available.
Selected students will have the opportunity to gain valuable research experience by working with scientists or engineers on mission critical projects in a world class DOE national laboratory. Interested students can learn more about the program requirements and apply online by visiting: www.scied.science.doe.gov/scied/erulf/about.html
The National Labs
The DOE national laboratories are located nation wide. DOE's Office of Science is the steward of the 10 national laboratories that support the missions of its science programs. The national laboratory system, created over a half-century ago, represents the most comprehensive research system of its kind in the world. These laboratories perform research and development that is not well suited to university or private sector research facilities because of its scope, infrastructure, or multidisciplinary nature, but for which there is a strong public and national purpose. A high level of collaboration among all of the national laboratories in the use of world-class scientific equipment and supercomputers, facilities, and multidisciplinary teams of scientists increases their collective contribution to DOE and the Nation, making the laboratory system more valuable as a whole than as the sum of its parts.
