Mentor Round Up

Other internships
Other internships

  • Fermilab Internship in Physics of Accelerators and Related Technology for International Students (PARTI) 

    • AKA “The Russians” – aimed at students from former Soviet Union

    • Applications closed and mentors assigned.

    • In the future, contact Sasha Shemyakin or Sasha Valishev

  • “The Italians”: summer internships in both

    • Engineering (contact Emanuela Barzi)

    • Physics (contact Giorgio Bellettini)

Mentor Round Up


  • Interns are matched with a mentor/project prior to coming (or even prior to the offer being made).

  • Students are paid a stipend plus travel and lodging expenses.

  • Generally, some sort of report is expected at the end of the term (a paper and/or presentation).

Mentor project guidelines
Mentor/project guidelines

  • Projects should be well-defined and have a realistic scope

    • Remember, these are undergrads!

    • Ideally, scope should be scalable, depending on the student.

  • In general, projects involving hardware tend to work out the best, although software projects can work out if they are well designed:

    • Bad to have students spend the summer “thinking about something” or simply running software.

  • Mentors must be willing to devote time to this:

    • Some students need more supervision than others. Assume the worst!

    • Be sure you have a backup if you will be traveling.

Some improvements this year
Some improvements this year

  • Carol Angarola has streamlined process with HR for IPM and Lee Teng

    • Won’t need to apply twice any more

  • I plan to make arrangements with CD to streamline standard computer accounts (Kerberos principle and account on Fermi domain)

    • A common complaint last year

  • Plan to have a mentor orientation meeting some time before the summer.
