Summer Internships

Internships will offer IDEAS trainees experiential learning in real-life professional environments, skills in collaboration and teamwork, and networking opportunities. Professional internships are often required by private-sector employers. IDEAS will offer 10-12 week internship opportunities in a variety of data science environments:

  • Academic and government research and computing labs
  • Private companies who already employ data scientists and run competitive internship programs
  • LSST project data center
  • aLIGO detector sites
  • IRIS Data Management Center which facilitates the data archival, distribution, and processing for Earthscope and other seismic observatory networks.

PhD trainees will be required to complete at least one summer internship, with the potential for travel support.

Students in the IDEAS program can find more information on internship opportunities here.
