“My internship at PNNL allowed me to perform cutting-edge research that has real-world applications. When working on ABF projects, I connected with researchers across multiple DOE labs who provided patient and enthusiastic mentoring. The SULI program opened up new career paths and shaped the research I intend to pursue in graduate school and my career.”

Kelly Teitel, ABF SULI Intern at PNNL

Additionally, the U.S. Department of Energy offers the following internship opportunities. Please note that not all internships or programs may afford the applicants to work directly with the Agile BioFoundry. Please refer to each national laboratory’s website for more information.

“Immersed in a vast research community, I had the opportunity to engage in multidisciplinary and collaborative research, which deepened my understanding and appreciation of the complexities of sustainable biomanufacturing and biological engineering. This pivotal experience has been instrumental in cementing my aspirations to pursue graduate studies and continue my research in these critical fields.”

Torrey Lind, ABF Intern at NREL
