Department of Energy Internship Opportunities for Undergraduate Students 

Several DOE scientists are seeking undergraduate student interns during the summer of 2021 to participate in research associated with the TRacking Aerosol Convection interactions ExpeRiment (TRACER) field campaign including first light data analysis, atmospheric modeling, weather forecasting and other activities. These internships would be available through the DOE Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (https://science.osti.gov/wdts), including the following programs:  

Applicants will need to indicate their first and second choice laboratory’s on their application. To help with this aspect, the following scientific staff are actively seeking TRACER-related interns.  

  • Brookhaven National Laboratory (Michael Jensen [mjensen@bnl.gov], Die Wang [diewang@bnl.gov]) – Research includes convective forecasting, sea-breeze convection interactions, radiosonde analysis and in situ precipitation. 
  • Argonne National Laboratory (Scott Collis [scollis@anl.gov], Robert Jackson [rjackson@anl.gov]) – Research includes radar and satellite-based Lagrangian cloud-tracking, weather forecasting including machine learning – artificial intelligence applications, edge computing. 
  • Los Alamos National Laboratory (Manvendra Dubey [dubey@lanl.gov]) – Research includes instrument data quality and interpretation of in situ measurements with a particular focus on carbonaceous aerosol measurements.  
  • Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (Jiwen Fan [Jiwen.Fan@pnnl.gov]) – Research includes convective forecasting, data processing of TRACER observations, and convective modeling studies.  

Applicants are encouraged to reach out to the scientists prior to submitting their applications.
