INL Internships Available

  • The Idaho National Laboratory offers internships at a variety of levels – undergraduate through post doctoral with valuable work and life experience.INL internships, like the lab's research, span a wide range of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields and support roles.INL interns also receive extensive training - like resume' writing and communication strategies - to help improve their "soft skills."  In addition, they can attend lectures that feature world-renowned researchers discussing a broad range of energy topics from nuclear non-proliferation to hybrid energy systems.
  • Interns participate in lab wide tours to enhance their knowledge of INL, its history and missions.  The INL site tours include visits to Experimental Breeder Reactor-1, where nuclear fission generated the world's first usable amount of electricity, the Advanced Test Reactor, and a 3D research tool known as a computer assisted virtual environment - or CAVE.
