Job Description

PNNL is seeking undergraduate students for assignments within the National Security Internship Program (NSIP). Do you want to be challenged with hard problems in national security, energy, and science and apply cutting-edge research to make our nation safer and stronger? Do you want to perform research and development critical to prevent and counter terrorism and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction? Are you interested in chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives measurement and materials characterization?

If you answered yes, please join us as an intern in the Signatures Science and Technology Division. Your internship will land you in one of eight focus area.

1.Applied Physics: We specialize in non-nuclear measurement sciences including Electromagnetics/Radiography, Optics/Infrared Spectroscopy, and Acoustics/Ultrasonics.

2.Chemical and Biological Sciences: We solve challenges related to chemical and biological detection and forensics.

3.Chemistry of Nuclear Materials: We specialize in synthesis, characterization, and analysis of nuclear and radiological materials and nuclear process science.

4.Detection Systems: We develop radiation detection technology for supporting applied measurements and analysis for border security, treaty verification, and environmental monitoring applications.

5.Intelligence Analysis: We provide analysis and analytical support of the nuclear fuel cycle, WMD production, signature characterization, statistical modeling, WMD forensics, hydrology, and geospatial analysis.

6.Nuclear Engineering and Analysis: We design and analyze components utilized in nuclear applications, nuclear non-proliferation and criticality safety.

7.Radiation Detection and Nuclear Science: We develop new capabilities in radionuclide detection, environmental assessment and remediation, treaty verification, detector materials development, and proliferation detection and prevention.

8.Radiochemical Analysis: We perform research in areas such as radiochemistry, nuclear materials chemistry and analysis, instrument development, safeguards, fate and transport, and nuclear signatures.

Candidates must be degree-seeking students enrolled at an accredited college or university. Candidates must be taking at least 6 credit hours and have an overall GPA of 3.3.

Some projects may require U.S. citizenship.
