Experiences in Research
What is EinR?
Experiences in Research (EinR) is an internship program for high school students to gain hands-on experience with professionals at Berkeley Lab. Students spend six weeks over summer working directly on cutting edge projects alongside experts in STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) and STEM adjacent careers. Projects are focused around different aspects of STEM professions such as administration, science communication, data science, experimental research, and more.
Students will be able to express their interests and project preferences in the application process to develop skills in their preferred field. Students will NOT be allowed to directly contact mentors during the application submission process.
2023 internship projects will be hybrid or virtual depending on the office and scope of work.
Who should Apply?
This program is for current 10th, 11th and 12th grade students enrolled in Northern California with experience in independent work. Interns will be working approximately 20 hours a week over the course of six weeks. This is a paid internship program.
For students looking for more of an introduction to STEM fields, we recommend applying to the Berkeley Lab Director's Apprenticeship Program.
Internship dates are from June 20 - July 28, 2023.
Please note: Students are only allowed to complete the program once. Former interns are not eligible to apply.
Student applications will open early February 2023. For more information, visit the Application Page.
Applications close at 11:59 pm on April 3, 2023.
