Job Description Summer Student Internships in Low-Carbon Energy System Modeling and Optimization, Graduate and Undergraduate Students, Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, CA Developing optimization models for systems of energy devices. These models will be used to connect electricity and thermal demands in buildings with energy supply from alternative energy generators including fuel cells. Successful candidates will collaborate on the overall research project described on this website: You will be involved in the modeling of energy systems with the aim of designing them to achieve environmental, infrastructure security, and economic goals. You will help evaluate designs of alternative vehicles, power plants, and building thermal management systems, along with each technology?s related energy supply chain. Assessment criteria for these energy systems and supply chains will include 1) their impact on the environment including a) greenhouse gas emissions, b) criteria air pollutants, c) solid waste production, d) human health and e) energy efficiency; 2) their implications for national security including a) the security of the fuel and energy supplied, b) the diversity of the fuel supply, and c) the dependence of foreign oil; and 3) their costs to consumers, governments, and incumbent energy suppliers. Required / Desired Criteria: Required General Student Internship Program (SIP) Criteria: Must be at least 16 years of age Must have full-time enrollment status at a high school, college, or university Must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2/4.0 (or 4.0/5.0) Must be a U.S. citizen Desired Criteria: We are looking for engineers with backgrounds in operations research (optimization), management science and engineering, systems engineering, heat transfer, thermodynamics, stationary power plants, mobile power plants, and alternative energy conversion devices. We are looking for both undergraduate and graduate students. Apply via the website: Job Opening ID for Graduate Students (57971) Job Opening ID for Undergraduate Students (57972)
