  • Idaho National Lab Shares Student & Faculty Opportunities

ACEP has been working with Idaho National Lab and other U.S. Department of Energy National Labs on a range of workforce development initiatives.
Many ACEP students, researchers, and affiliates have completed internships at various national labs over the past years. In 2014, three ACEP-affiliated UAF students interned at INL where their work included the policy and technology aspects of nuclear microreactors. They benefited significantly from the experience in preparation for their respective careers in Alaska's energy sectors.
On September 17-18, ACEP coordinated several meetings between INL’s Delisa Rogers and Steven Aumeier with Alaska stakeholders in Anchorage and Fairbanks to discuss the latest round of university engagement opportunities.
INL's internship programs are available to both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens and span a range of academic disciplines (business as well as science and engineering), with options that include academic settings from first-year to postdoctorate.
Rogers and Aumeier were in Fairbanks to participate in the UAF Career Fair and received many inquiries from interested students. Additional information on these opportunities is available at or by contacting George Roe.
