National Laboratory Opportunities
April 23, 2012 – "Educational Opportunities in Bioenergy"
The DOE Office of Science is the steward of 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.
The Office of Science oversees these 10 national laboratories:
In addition, the Office of Science funds research and development projects conducted at these additional national laboratories, which are overseen by other DOE offices:
Each of the laboratories listed above has specific requirements when applying for internships. Please contact Keith Rutlin in the Center for Sustainable Energy for assistance when applying for an internship at one of these laboratories.
