Applications for the 2019 IACMI Internship Program are now closed.
IACMI – The Composites Institute Seeks Applicants for Nationally Recognized Internship Program
Knoxville, Tenn., Dec. 13, 2018 … IACMI – The Composites Institute is currently seeking graduate and undergraduate student applicants who are interested in participating in a short-term, 10-week summer internship program in 2019. The internship application is open from now until February 8, 2019, at 11:59PM EST.
IACMI – The Composites Institute supports research and development projects that accelerate the adoption of advanced composites, creating new
manufacturing jobs in the advanced manufacturing industry. IACMI capabilities support composites integration in a variety of industries that are supported by IACMI members including vehicles, wind energy, compressed gas storage, infrastructure, and aerospace, with cross cutting technologies including modeling and simulation and materials and processes. Through the internship program, IACMI develops the skills of strong technical undergraduates and graduate students who can one day support the workforce in these industries in both talent and leadership.
Interested applicants have the opportunity to apply for internships specializing in various composite and materials research at one of IACMI’s member or partner locations across the U.S.
Through the IACMI internship, participants have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art equipment and to interact with scientists and engineers who are at the top of their fields. Additionally, IACMI interns have the opportunity to learn alongside composites industry innovators – in both the academic and industrial spaces. Specific project details may adapt with research needs and may involve one or more of the 160 IACMI member organizations, which represent industry, academia, and government partners.
Since the internship program launch, more than 100 internship appointees have been placed at nearly 20 locations in industry, academic research labs, and national laboratories. By learning alongside engineers and researchers at large companies including DuPont, TPI, and Ford, as well as small and medium sized organizations including Local Motors and Vartega, previous interns have cited valuable experiences solving real-world problems such as developing new composites recycling methods, characterizing carbon fiber materials, and drafting standard operating procedures for composites manufacturing equipment.
To be eligible for the internship program, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen and student in good standing at a regionally accredited U.S. college or university and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 or the equivalent as verified by official transcripts. All applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time of appointment and provide proof of health insurance coverage. Participants will have the opportunity to purchase health insurance coverage through ORAU.
Program participants will receive a weekly stipend based on hours of participation, weekly housing allowance and limited in- and out-bound travel reimbursement to and from the internship site. In addition, program participants will have the opportunity to network with over 300 industry leaders at the IACMI members’ meeting in July in Colorado.
Applications and supporting materials are being accepted online until February 8, 2019 at 11:59PM EST. For additional information, visit www.orau.org/IACMI or email Julie Malicoat at email@example.com.
