Intern - Lee Teng Internship in Accelerator Science and Engineering
December 8, 2017
- Summer Research/Internship
Government and National Lab
The Lee Teng Internshipin Accelerator Science and Engineering is an exciting education and research opportunity for students majoring in physics, engineering or computer science at U.S. universities/colleges. Students must have junior standing at the time of application. Outstanding sophomores may also be considered.
During the eleven-week summer internship program (May 29 – August 10, 2018) each student works closely with a Fermilab or Argonne National Laboratory mentor. The program includes a full scholarship to attend the two-week U.S. Particle Accelerator School sponsored by Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. Additionally, interns are paid an hourly wage, as well as receive travel and lodging allowances.
All applications are received by Fermilab. Interns are placed at either Fermilab or Argonne National Laboratory, as determined by their interests and qualifications.
Internship support includes:
Hourly wage based on a 40-hour work-week:
U.S. Particle Accelerator School – paid full tuition
Shared use of a rental car (for Fermilab interns only)
Paid airfare and ground transportation to/from the Laboratory (for students outside Chicagoland)
18 years of age by the program start date - May 29, 2018.
Junior academic standing and enrollment in university/college in the United States at the time of application. Outstanding sophomores at the time of application, may also apply.
Fermilab is America’s premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. We support discovery science experiments in Illinois and at locations around the world, including deep underground mines in South Dakota and Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole.We are strategic risk takers, innovators and collaborators. We are ...engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park.
