Diversity Enhancement and Student Programs


The Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) invites candidates to apply for the Diversity Outreach Opportunities in Research (D.O.O.R.) Internship Program. The 10-12 week (May to August) research-focused internship program is open to achieving students from underrepresented backgrounds who may have an interest in attending graduate school at Penn State or pursuing a career as a Research and Development engineer at the ARL. Students selected for the program will serve as active, hands-on, contributing members of the research staff at ARL. A strong possibility exists for establishing a continuing research project between ARL and the researcher`s home institutions. Research projects include topics in Additive Manufacturing, Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles, Big Data Analysis, and more. In certain cases, research topics can be decided by the intern. This outreach program is available to undergraduates in the mathematics, physics, engineering, computer science, materials science, and computer information system disciplines. However, positions are also available in the Enterprise Operations area as well for this program, which include Business Services, Engineering Services, Human Resources, Security Services, Information Technology Services, and Corporate Communications. Interns will work up to 40 hours per week. Candidate selected may be subject to a government security investigation. You must be a U.S. citizen to apply. Employment with the Applied Research Laboratory will require successful completion of a pre-employment drug screen.
