Undergraduate Internships

INL hires hundreds of students from universities around the country each year to work at the lab under the guidance of experienced and talented mentors.

The majority of INL internships are in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, such as nuclear engineering, chemistry, computer science and physics. However, INL also needs support staff and offers internships in fields such as business, marketing, communications and logistics.

How long will your internship last?

INL’s internship terms are designed to match a typical university term, lasting anywhere from 10 to 16 weeks.

Summer interns should come to INL expecting to work 40 hours per week. There is, however, flexibility within that 40-hour workweek to assist interns with scheduling conflicts, if needed.

How much will you be paid?

INL interns are paid a nationally competitive wage that is based on the number of credits they have earned and degree program they are enrolled in.

Interns are included in the INL paid holiday schedule and many of our internships offer travel reimbursements and a generous housing stipend.

What amenities will you enjoy?

INL is located in eastern Idaho, which is near two national parks (Grand Teton and Yellowstone); Jackson, Wyo.; Sun Valley; numerous golf courses; hiking and biking trails; and whitewater rafting and fly fishing hotspots.
