Northwestern-Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering Undergraduate Summer Research Internships at Argonne National Laboratory
  • The Northwestern-Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering (NAISE) seeks applicants for summer research internships at Argonne National Laboratory. Objectives are for students to gain experience working at a national laboratory and for the university and the laboratory to build collaborations in research areas strategic to both institutions. Successful applicants will spend 10 weeks in the program over the summer quarter with one mentor from each institution. Students will conduct the majority of the work at Argonne, making use of the NAISE carpool vehicles to travel there. Concluding symposia with research presentations will be held at both Argonne and Northwestern.
  • To Apply: Submit a 1-page cover letter expressing your choice of research area (see options 1-4 below), an explanation of this choice, a resume (1-2 pages), and two letters of recommendation by FEBRUARY 15, 2018 to
