Sandia National Laboratories will offer a Subsurface Technology & Engineering Research (SubTER) oriented summer internship mid-May through early August 2016 and focus on subjects including geophysical data processing, tomographic imaging, automatic picking, and ambient seismic interferometry for the purpose of fracture imaging. Intern will process and analyze high frequency active source cross-well seismic data and downhole Digital Acoustic Sensing (DAS) data. Analysis will be targeted toward developing results for publications and/or conference presentations. Internship will be posted early 2016. If you would like to be notified, please email Dr. Hunter Knox and include the text “SubTER Summer Internship 2016” in the subject line or visit our Careers webpage.

Other Opportunities

DOE SC Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE OS mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE labs. The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE lab in areas addressing scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission.

Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF)

The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF), sponsored by U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy, is a 10-week summer internship program for students pursuing degrees in science, technology (IT), engineering, or mathematics (STEM majors). The goal of the program is to improve opportunities for minority and female students in these fields, but all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply. Candidates who are selected will have the opportunity to work under the mentorship of program officials and researchers on focused research projects consistent with the mission of the Office of Fossil Energy.
