The Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (MSIPP) Internships is a new program to promote the education and development of the next generation workforce in critical science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) related disciplines that complement current and future missions of DOE national laboratories. The MSIPP Internship program is designed to provide an enhanced training environment for next generation scientists and engineers by exposing them to research challenges unique to our industry.
MSIPP Interns will be given the opportunity to complete Summer Internships aligned with ongoing U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM) research under the direction of a host national laboratory. The internship will be performed at the host national laboratory, utilizing their facilities and equipment under the guidance of a research staff member.
Minority Serving Institutions are institutions of higher education enrolling populations with significant percentages of undergraduate minority students.
Project: Assist the Licensing Team within The Richard P. Feynman Center for Innovation (FCI) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). In this role, students will work jointly with Licensing Executives/ Associates to move Los Alamos technologies to the marketplace for the benefit of the U.S. economy.
The licensing team provides support to a variety of organizations including; technical staff, legal, finance, and business development executives.
Some of the projects include; reviewing/audit license agreement types, assisting with license life cycle management, analyzing intellectual property, completing market analysis, auditing IP support tools, and attending Technology Transfer events such as “Disrupt Tech.”
Note: The projects for this role can be completed virtually with Webex and Outlook used as the main communication tools.
Salary: Selected candidate will be compensated by either a stipend or salary, and may include one round trip domestic travel to and from the host laboratory. Stipends and salaries will be commensurate with cost of living at the location of the host laboratory. Housing information will be provided to interns prior to arrival at the host laboratory, and will vary from lab to lab.
