Internships and fellowships
SRI enriches the science and technology community by training and mentoring undergraduate and graduate student interns. Our internship participants experience a broad spectrum of activities from learning how to write grant proposals and client reports, to articulating ideas and conducting hands-on research.
Student interns have opportunities to present their work, attend seminars and engage with their peers. Students benefit from having an assigned advisor and from working in an environment that includes some of the R&D community’s most innovative contributors.
Specific to undergraduates, SRI participates in the National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program. The REU program provides opportunities for outstanding undergraduates to participate in research at SRI and benefit from the collegial atmosphere of collaboration and communication among all members of their laboratory.
All interns must have current full-time undergraduate or graduate student status at an accredited college institution, plus unrestricted authorization to work in the United States. Positions are designed to supplement education and career direction. Job duties are tied to a specific project, and training is provided in parallel to the classroom curriculum.
SRI enriches the science and technology community by shaping postdoctoral students into professional researchers. Postdoctoral fellowship positions are available to U.S. and non-U.S. citizens of high scientific and scholastic achievement who have recently received their doctoral degrees and want to continue their research and training under the guidance of a senior SRI staff member.
Postdoctoral positions are usually for a one-year period and may be extended by mutual agreement in one-year increments for a second or third year (completion of the period is not obligatory for either party). In many cases, postdoctoral fellows at SRI have the opportunity to become career researchers or scientists. SRI provides full benefits to our postdoctoral fellows, and relocation assistance is provided.
