CHIPS Articles: NIST Announces Summer 2020 Internships

NIST Announces Summer 2020 Internships
By CHIPS Magazine - January 8, 2020
The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) is designed to inspire undergraduate students to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) through a unique research experience that supports the NIST mission.

Thinking about a summer 2020 internship? Interested in gaining valuable, hands-on experience, working with cutting-edge technology in one of the world’s leading research organizations? Want to advance measurement science , standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life?

Would you like to learn about a career in public service? If you answered "yes" to at least one of these questions, you are invited to apply for a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Boulder, Colorado, or Gaithersburg, Maryland. The application deadline is Feb. 3, 2020 or when the application limit is reached (the limit varies by location and may be sooner than the closing date).

National Institute of Standards and Technology thanks you for your interest in SURF. The SURF Program is designed to inspire undergraduate students to pursue careers in STEM through a unique research experience that supports the NIST mission. Since 1993, SURF students from across the country have had the opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on experience, working with advanced technology in one of the world's leading research organizations — home to three Nobel Prize winners.

Over the course of 11 weeks, SURF students contribute to the ongoing research of one of the six NIST facilities — Communications Technology Laboratory (CTL), Engineering Laboratory (EL), Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), Material Measurement Laboratory (MML), NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR), and Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML) (which now includes project in the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology).

Apply today on www.usajobs.gov (search “SURF Program at Boulder” and/or "SURF Program at Gaithersburg").

Interested, but not sure? You can tune in to a webinar on Jan. 9, 2020 (12:00 -1:30 PM (ET)) to learn more about the application process and the SURF experience. Registration information is located here.

Please note: Only U.S. citizens are eligible to participate in the SURF Program.

SURF Fellows visit Capitol Hill each summer to interact with congressional representatives primarily on STEM initiatives. This NIST photo is from the 2018 visit.
