Job Description

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is seeking ambitious, high caliber junior or senior high school students for intern assignments within the ROSES Program (Research on the Science and Engineering of Signatures). This is a research-based experience for students who are traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering, specifically African American and Hispanic youth. The ROSES program was established at PNNL to increase the number of underrepresented minorities working at PNNL. Students work side-by-side with a scientist-mentor in a specific research area. Preference will be given to African American and Hispanic students seeking a STEM career.

The selected student will provide software design, documentation, manual-testing, automated-testing, configuration, maintenance, and data collection support to a number of projects utilizing web-based knowledge management and other technologies. Prior knowledge is a bonus but not a requirement for acceptance. Training will be provided.
