Internships for undergraduate students are available in the Experimental Nuclear Physics Group, Radiochemistry Group, and Applied Research Center.

We can also help you with applications to REU programs across the country and applications to the Department of Energy's SULI program. We also encourage qualifying students to apply to FIU's McNair Program.

DOE Fellows at Florida International University

Florida International University (FIU), the largest Hispanic serving educational institution in the continental United States, is one of the nation’s leading producers of scientists and engineers from underrepresented groups. In 1995, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM) formed a unique partnership with FIU to support environmental cleanup technology development, testing and deployment at DOE sites. This partnership led to the creation of a research center at FIU dedicated to applied, environmental R&D. The center, now known as the Applied Research Center (ARC), has tackled and helped solve problems at 11 DOE sites. The partnership with DOE-EM supported the hands-on training of 824 FIU students from 1995 – 2006. ARC is located at FIU’s Engineering Campus and is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities for conducting scientific R&D and for testing, evaluating, and validating new and innovative environmental technologies.
