Flow Science Internship


Idaho National Labs Internships

The Idaho National Laboratory offers internships at a variety of levels – undergraduate through post doctoral with valuable work and life experience.

INL internships, like the lab’s research, span a wide range of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields and support roles.

INL interns also receive extensive training – like resume’ writing and communication strategies – to help improve their “soft skills.”  In addition, they can attend lectures that feature world-renowned researchers discussing a broad range of energy topics from nuclear non-proliferation to hybrid energy systems.

Interns participate in lab wide tours to enhance their knowledge of INL, its history and missions.  The INL site tours include visits to Experimental Breeder Reactor-1, where nuclear fission generated the world’s first usable amount of electricity, the Advanced Test Reactor, and a 3D research tool known as a computer assisted virtual environment – or CAVE.

For more information on the Idaho National Laboratory you may visit www.inl.gov.

  • Deriving Intelligence from Encrypted Stream



Computer System, Cluster, and Networking Summer Institute

The Computer System, Cluster, and Networking Summer Institute (CSCNSI) is a focused technical enrichment program targeting third-year college undergraduate students currently engaged in a computer science, computer engineering, or similar major. The program emphasizes practical skill development in setting up, configuring, administering, testing, monitoring, and scheduling computer systems, supercomputer clusters, and computer networks through a variety of activities including hands-on technical training, lectures, professional development seminars, and tours of LANL facilities.

Students work in small project teams to execute real-world projects on computer clusters that they assemble and configure. A university instructor provides class instruction, and LANL subject matter experts mentor team projects. Students develop written and oral communications skills through critiqued presentations and present their work at a technical poster session at the conclusion of the Summer Institute. The CSCNSI is also an innovative, proactive approach to making the students aware of career possibilities within the Laboratory.
