Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI)

Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) at Jefferson Lab

SULI Students with JLab's Director

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) in Newport News, with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, encourages undergraduate students to apply for the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program to participate in research opportunities in accelerator physics and nuclear physics, engineering, computer science, and mathematics.

The goals of Jefferson Lab's SULI program include encouraging and preparing students to pursue graduate school for advanced degrees in experimental/theoretical physics and accelerator science.

Students will contribute to the lab's science program by working on projects under the supervision of Lab scientists, engineers, and users. In some cases students will be co-authors on resulting publications.

The summer program begins the Tuesday after Memorial Day and runs for 10 weeks, ending with participation in the Jefferson Lab Summer Student Poster Session. Students will have ample time to interact with each other, graduate students and Jefferson Lab staff scientists. Social and cultural activities will help forge a strong bond among the students.

Selected students will receive a $650 stipend each week (subject to U.S. taxes), shared housing at the SURA Residence Facility, and travel support for students living more than 60 miles away from Jefferson Lab.
