2015 Summer Term internship/fellowship with The Office of Science / Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists

The Office of Sci­ence / Office of Work­force Devel­op­ment for Teach­ers and Sci­en­tists (WDTS) is pleased to announce that it is accept­ing appli­ca­tions to its 2015 Sum­mer Term internship/fellowship pro­grams. These pro­grams, which offer oppor­tu­ni­ties for direct engage­ment in sci­en­tific research and tech­nol­ogy fea­tur­ing spe­cial­ized instru­men­ta­tion; large-scale, mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary efforts; and/or sci­en­tific user facil­i­ties, are avail­able for under­grad­u­ate stu­dents enrolled at com­mu­nity col­leges and/or four-year insti­tu­tions, and for vis­it­ing fac­ulty. Selected stu­dents or fac­ulty par­tic­i­pate at one of 17 DOE Laboratories/Facilities, receive stipends, and may qual­ify for travel and hous­ing assistance.

Appli­ca­tions for these com­pet­i­tive pro­grams must be com­pleted and sub­mit­ted online by 5:00 PM ET on Jan­u­ary 9, 2015 (includ­ing all required appli­ca­tion mate­ri­als and rec­om­men­da­tions). The 2015 Sum­mer Term place­ments are for 10 weeks dura­tion in a May to August timeframe.

The three pro­grams accept­ing appli­ca­tions are:

  •  The Sci­ence Under­grad­u­ate Lab­o­ra­tory Intern­ship (SULI) pro­gram encour­ages under­grad­u­ate stu­dents to pur­sue sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing, and math­e­mat­ics (STEM) careers by pro­vid­ing research expe­ri­ences, under the guid­ance of laboratory/facility staff sci­en­tists or engi­neers, on projects sup­port­ing the DOE mis­sion.  More infor­ma­tion about SULI and access to the online appli­ca­tion is at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/suli/.
  •  The Com­mu­nity Col­lege Intern­ship (CCI) pro­gram encour­ages com­mu­nity col­lege stu­dents to enter tech­ni­cal careers rel­e­vant to the DOE mis­sion by pro­vid­ing tech­ni­cal train­ing expe­ri­ences at the DOE Labs.  Stu­dents work on tech­nolo­gies or instru­men­ta­tion projects or major research facil­i­ties related to ongo­ing R&D pro­grams. More infor­ma­tion about CCI and access to the online appli­ca­tion is at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/cci/.
  •  The Vis­it­ing Fac­ulty Pro­gram (VFP) seeks to increase the research com­pet­i­tive­ness of fac­ulty mem­bers and their stu­dents at insti­tu­tions his­tor­i­cally under­rep­re­sented in the research com­mu­nity in order to expand the work­force vital to the DOE mis­sion areas.  In this pro­gram, selected university/college fac­ulty mem­bers col­lab­o­rate with DOE lab­o­ra­tory research staff on a research project of mutual inter­est. Fac­ulty mem­ber par­tic­i­pants may invite up to two stu­dents (one of which may be a grad­u­ate stu­dent) to par­tic­i­pate in the research project. Appli­cants estab­lish their col­lab­o­ra­tions with lab­o­ra­tory research staff in advance of apply­ing and must sub­mit a co-developed research pro­posal as part of the appli­ca­tion. Stu­dents apply sep­a­rately at the invi­ta­tion of the fac­ulty mem­ber. More infor­ma­tion about the VFP and access to the online appli­ca­tion is at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/vfp/.

The SULI, CCI and VFP pro­grams are spon­sored and man­aged by the DOE Office of Sci­ence / Office of Work­force Devel­op­ment for Teach­ers and Sci­en­tists. The Depart­ment of Energy’s Office of Sci­ence is the sin­gle largest sup­porter of basic research in the phys­i­cal sci­ences in the United States, and is work­ing to address some of the most press­ing chal­lenges of our time.

Mahina: International Indigenous Health Research Training Program

Mahina, Inter­na­tional Indige­nous Health Research Train­ing Pro­gram — Dead­line Nov 17!

This 10–12 week-long sum­mer pro­gram in Hawai’i and Aotearoa (New Zealand) is specif­i­cally designed for under­grad­u­ate and grad­u­ate stu­dents inter­ested in health research careers (see eli­gi­bil­ity cri­te­ria below). This pro­gram is a part­ner­ship between the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton, Uni­ver­sity of Hawaii at Manoa and the Uni­ver­sity of Auck­land in Aotearoa.

Mahina offers trainees fund­ing for travel and hous­ing costs and a stipend for liv­ing expenses.  We are actively seek­ing appli­ca­tions for Sum­mer 2015. The appli­ca­tion dead­line is Novem­ber 17, 2014. 

About Mahina

Mahi­nais designed for stu­dents who intend to pur­sue careers in bio­med­ical, behav­ioral and pub­lic health research fields. It is the only MHIRT pro­gram that exposes stu­dents to Indi­genist approaches to well­ness and Indige­nous research ethics and pro­to­cols. The pro­gram fea­tures onsite immer­sion in Aotearoa and research learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties with Indige­nous peoples.

Trainees will learn about social, cul­tural, and his­tor­i­cal deter­mi­nants of Indige­nous health; com­mu­nity based participatory/tribal par­tic­i­pa­tory research (CBPR); and culturally-based health pro­mo­tion and dis­ease pre­ven­tion interventions.

Cen­tral to this unique pro­gram is the trainees’ explo­rations of cul­tur­ally spe­cific Indige­nous epis­te­molo­gies, method­olo­gies, and research pro­to­cols.  In addi­tion to being trained and men­tored by top indige­nous schol­ars and researchers, trainees will be assigned a “sib­ling” grad­u­ate stu­dent men­tor (Tuakana) in accor­dance with cul­tural cus­toms of the Maori.

Mahina offers trainees fund­ing for travel and hous­ing costs and a stipend for liv­ing expenses.

Undergraduate Scholarship Opportunity for STEM Students

The NOAA Edu­ca­tional Part­ner­ship Pro­gram with Minor­ity Serv­ing Insti­tu­tions Under­grad­u­ate Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram is accept­ing appli­ca­tions.  Pro­gram encour­ages advis­ers, men­tors, and poten­tial appli­cants to take advan­tage of the NOAA resources made avail­able in this mes­sage.  Com­pet­i­tive appli­ca­tions: (i) address the NOAA mis­sion; (ii) have resume and per­sonal state­ments that are crafted to be rel­e­vant to the NOAA mis­sion, and (iii) have rec­om­men­da­tions that are well devel­oped and made rel­e­vant to the NOAA mission.
 
What:  Pro­vides schol­ar­ships for two years of under­grad­u­ate study. 
 
Who:  Ris­ing junior under­grad­u­ate stu­dents major­ing in Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy, Engi­neer­ing and Math­e­mat­ics (STEM) fields that directly sup­port NOAA’s mission. 
 
The Pro­gram:
Stu­dents receive total awards val­ued at up to $35,000 in total sup­port dur­ing their junior and senior years. 
Stu­dents com­plete a nine week paid sum­mer intern­ship at NOAA in Sil­ver Spring, MD, between May and July of the first sum­mer. Dur­ing the sec­ond sum­mer, stu­dents com­plete paid intern­ships at NOAA facil­i­ties across the coun­try. Dur­ing the sum­mer intern­ships, stu­dents are paid a stipend and receive a hous­ing allowance. 
Stu­dent schol­ar­ship recip­i­ents attend a two-week ori­en­ta­tion at NOAA in Sil­ver Spring, MD, and begin their first sum­mer intern­ship in early June.
At the end of both sum­mer intern­ships, stu­dents present the results of their projects at an edu­ca­tion and sci­ence sym­po­sium in Sil­ver Spring, MD (travel expenses paid).
