The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) Robotics Internship Program offers 10-week, hands-on, practical summer internships at DOE national laboratories.

Launched on December 22, 2022, applications are being accepted through Friday, January 27, 2023, 5:00 PM Eastern Time Zone (EST).


Why should I apply?

As a participant in the EERE Robotics Internship Program, you will engage in research-level robotics activities under the guidance of a mentor who is a technical staff scientist or engineer at a federal national laboratory. You will gain a competitive edge as you apply your education, talent, and skills to the research and development of projects focused on robotics and advanced manufacturing. You will also be able to establish connections with DOE scientists and subject matter experts that promote long-term relationships between yourself, researchers, and DOE.

What will I do?

Internship activities will vary based on the assigned research project and hosting facility. You can choose the project you are most interested in for the summer! As part of your application, you will identify your top 3 research projects from the 2023 Robotics Project Catalog. You can review the catalog at ****** by scrolling to the bottom of the webpage. While your preferences will be taken into consideration during the final selection process, it is not guaranteed that you will be offered one of the projects listed.
