Experiences in Research

What is EinR?

Experiences in Research (EinR) is a virtual internship program for high school students to gain hands-on experience with professionals at Berkeley Lab. Students spend six weeks over summer remotely 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.

All 2022 internship projects must be completed virtually due to COVID restrictions.

Who should Apply?

This program is for current juniors and seniors enrolled in Northern California with experience in independent work. Interns will be working 20 hours a week (approximately four hours per day) 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 21 - July 29, 2022.
