The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) offers opportunities to participate in energy-related research through three highly competitive internships and research fellowship programs managed by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education(ORISE), a United States Department of Energy institute managed by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU).

NETL, with three primary locations in Pittsburgh, PA, Morgantown, WV, and Albany, OR, is the only national laboratory owned and operated by the United States Department of Energy.  Its mission is to strengthen our nation’s security, to improve our nation’s environment, and to advance energy options that fuel our nation’s economy.  To complement NETL’s mission, ORISE educational programs helps to ensure that NETL has a robust supply of scientists and engineers to meet their future science and technology needs.  Currently, ORISE offers three educational programs at NETL facilities:

  • Professional Internship Program – for undergraduate and graduate students and Post Bachelor’s
  • Postgraduate Research Program – for recent master’s and doctoral recipients
  • Faculty Research Program – for full-time faculty (appointments are part-time, sabbatical, and summer)
