Applications for the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) Program are now open for the 2020 Summer Term. Applications are due January 9, 2020 at 5:00 PM ET
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students and recent graduates to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the DOE laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.
The SULI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories/facilities.
Applications for the SULI program are solicited annually for three separate internship terms. Internship appointments are 10 weeks in duration for the Summer Term (May through August) or 16 weeks in duration for the Fall (August through December) and Spring (January through May) Terms. Each DOE laboratory/facility offers different research opportunities; not all DOE laboratories/facilities offer internships during the Fall and Spring Terms.
About U.S. Dept. of Energy- Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessor organizations have more than a 60-year history of commitment to training and supporting scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. DOE’s role in workforce development has primarily focused upon the support of undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers through research and development awards at universities and at the DOE national laboratories. Today, that role also includes supporting educational and training programs to promote science and energy literacy.
Through support of R&D activities at universities, the DOE national laboratories, and the private sector, DOE funding has enabled tens of thousands of scientists, engineers, and technicians to tackle the seminal scientific questions of the day in physics, chemistry, biology, and other areas of basic science and to make substantial contributions to our energy, environment, and national security challenges.
DOE’s 17 laboratories provide a unique opportunity for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce development. The national laboratory system offers access to leading scientists: world-class scientific user facilities and ...instrumentation, and large-scale, multidisciplinary research programs unavailable in universities or industry. The DOE laboratories provide a number of opportunities for science, engineering, and technology training and education, annually providing programs for over 250,000 K-12 students, 22,000 K-12 educators, 4,000 undergraduate interns, 3,000 graduate students, and 1,600 postdoctoral researchers.
The DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) leverages the expertise of its six research program offices and the unique capabilities at DOE’s laboratories to sponsor workforce training programs designed to motivate students and educators to pursue careers that will contribute to the Office of Science’s mission in discovery science and science for the national need. WDTS also partners and coordinates with other DOE program offices and other federal agencies in its workforce and STEM education efforts.
