From creating a star on Earth to 3D printing a sports car, National Labs are pushing the frontiers of research and spurring the creation of brand new industries. All of the Department of Energy’s National Labs offer promising students an outstanding opportunity to experience what it’s like to work at one of the 17 National Labs.

Students can gain research experience in areas ranging from chemistry, physics, engineering, biology, nuclear medicine, applied mathematics and high and low-energy physics. Internships and fellowships not only develop marketable skills that can pay dividends in school and on the job hunt; they also present an opportunity to build relationships with mentors whose advice and support can be valuable long after an internship ends.

If you or someone you know is a student interested in science, technology, engineering or math, explore the opportunities at the National Labs today. Some deadlines are fast approaching, so check out the links below and apply today.
