Opportunity provides students with research experience at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
The Nuclear Engineering Science Laboratory Synthesis, or NESLS, program is accepting applications for spring and summer 2016.
NESLS is a cooperative research initiative at Oak Ridge National Laboratory administered through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education and geared toward students working in nuclear engineering and science. NESLS offers students on-the-job educational and research opportunities at a multidisciplinary national laboratory.
Research areas of interest may include nuclear security technologies; nuclear systems analysis, design, and safety; and fuels, isotopes, and nuclear materials. Other features of the internship include:
- A stipend based on academic status, ranging from $529-$935 per week for full-time; pro-rated for part-time
- Travel/housing assistance (based on eligibility)
- Professional development activities
- Open to U.S. and eligible international citizenship
To be eligible, students must be enrolled at an accredited U.S. college or university in a nuclear engineering, science, or eligible related field with a 3.0/4.0 cumulative grade-point average (GPA) at the time of appointment. Community college students must be working toward an associate of science or associate of engineering degree. All awards and active participation in the program are contingent upon security access approval to ORNL.
Applicants seeking an internship in spring 2016 must apply by December 31, 2015, and applicants seeking an internship in summer 2016 must apply by February 28, 2016. Program applications for both the spring 2016 and summer 2016 internships must be submitted through the online application system. Other scientific educational programs offered at ORNL are also available and seeking applicants. Visit http://www.orau.org/ornl/ for more information.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
