Job Description

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is seeking ambitious, high caliber sophomore, junior or senior high school students for intern assignments within the Student Research Apprenticeship Program (SRAP). This summer internship is a research-based experience for students who are sophomore, juniors or seniors and/or students traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering.

This project involves the construction and development of spectral libraries containing infrared calibrated spectra and metadata for liquids, solids, and deposition samples in the thermal-passive spectral region (1.3 – 16 µm). The student will assist with processing spectral data and reviewing and generating metadata, i.e. information about the sample and instrumental procedures.
