The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) Robotics Internship Program provides opportunities for students and recent graduates to intern at DOE national laboratories.
Project assignments will involve technologies used to develop machines that can substitute for humans and replicate human actions automatically. Examples of potential project assignments include:
The EERE Robotics Internship Program is sponsored by the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO). AMO partners with industry, small business, universities, and other stakeholders to identify and invest in emerging technologies with the potential to create high-quality domestic manufacturing jobs and enhance the global competitiveness of the United States. AMO establishes collaborative communities focused on developing and commercializing targeted technologies; plays a leadership role in the national interagency Advanced Manufacturing Partnership; and encourages a culture of continuous improvement in corporate energy management.
Review and Selection Process
Applications will be reviewed by mentors. Each hosting laboratory will identify candidates based on the qualifications of the applicants and the needs of each individual facility. Hosting facilities will assign a mentor and project to each selected candidate. While applicants preferences will be taken into consideration, it may not be possible for all applicants to be assigned to their preferred project or to the projects selected. Recommendations from hosting laboratories will be forwarded to EERE AMO for final selection.
Nature of Appointment
Interns will not enter into an employee/employer relationship with ORISE, ORAU, DOE, or hosting laboratory. Instead, interns will be affiliated with ORISE for the administration of the appointment through the ORISE appointment letter and Terms of Appointment.
