APS/IBM Research Internship for Undergraduate Women
Application Deadline: February 1, 2012
The American Physical Society and IBM co-sponsor a research internship program for undergraduate women. The goal is to encourage women students to pursue graduate studies in science and engineering.
• Must be female with sophomore or junior standing at a U.S. college or university at the time of application
• Must be majoring in chemistry, physics, materials science or engineering, computer science or engineering, chemical, electrical, mechanical engineering, or biology, if it has an emphasis on one of the other areas listed
• Must have a minimum 3.0 GPA
The internships are salaried positions typically 10 weeks long at one of three IBM research locations (San Jose, CA, Austin, TX, or Yorktown Heights, NY), and give the opportunity to work closely with an IBM mentor. The Watson lab has a full range of research, as does the Almaden lab, and the Austin lab focuses on software and systems. Research areas of the internship are individually chosen so as to optimize the match between the skills and interests of the student, and the ongoing research programs of the laboratory. Information about the sites and their research may be found at:
Almaden Research Center
Watson Research Center
Austin Research Laboratory
The starting and ending dates are chosen so as not to conflict with the student’s school schedule. Assistance in finding and renting housing will be provided.
