DOE Internship Programs
Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI)
The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission. Fall and spring programs are 15 weeks. Summer program is 10 weeks.
Community College Internship (CCI)
The Community College Internship (CCI) program provides technical training experiences for community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission.
Graduate Student Research Program (SCGSR)
The SCGSR research proposal is developed by the applying graduate student in collaboration with a NREL laboratory research scientist, and in consultation with the student’s primary graduate thesis advisor. The SCGSR research proposal includes the scope of thesis research proposed to be conducted at NREL.
NREL Research Participant Program Internships
Full-time undergraduate or graduate students have the opportunity to join the NREL team as an intern while gaining valuable mentoring experience, participating in the lab's research and development programs, and establishing ongoing collaborations through NREL's Research Participant Program.
NREL is a national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, operated by the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, LLC.
ACORE Internship Program
The (American Council On Renewable Energy) ACORE internship program is designed to mentor rising seniors and graduate students, as well as recent university graduates who are interested in making a career in the renewable energy industry. The focus of the program is to assist young professionals along the path of professional development, gaining the knowledge, resources and experience they need to join the renewable energy industry, whether it be in professional services, research, communications, market development, finance or policy.
Iceland GeoSurvey Internships
Iceland GeoSurvey wishes to contribute to the dissemination of geothermal knowledge and technical expertise, in Iceland and elsewhere. To this end, Iceland GeoSurvey aims to accommodate up to two interns each year. The accommodation includes office space and admittance to research facilities at ISOR as well as supervision of an geothermal expert but no other financial support. This internship is limited to graduate students in geosciences, mechanical and chemical engineering as well as physics and chemistry that relates to earth sciences. Recommended internship duration is 5-6 months, starting in the period from September to March. The application deadline for internships is April 1 each year.
Iceland School of Energy Internship
Each semester Iceland School of Energy offers several internship positions with leading energy companies in Iceland for our students to participate in. The positions are secured by Iceland School of Energy and give students the opportunity to work on stimulating energy projects that will expand their knowledge in the field of energy and allow them to develop professional skills in the sector.

Modeling Thermal Breakthrough in Sedimentary Geothermal System, Using COMSOL Multiphysics
Kamran JAHAN BAKHSH, Masami NAKAGAWA, Mahmood ARSHAD, Lucila DUNNINGTON
It is known that premature thermal breakthrough in the production well and cooling due to injection of cold water into a geothermal reservoir can degrade the quality of the reservoir operation. As the heat and mass transfer in the reservoir depends on the internal features of the reservoir and the interfacial features of surrounding rocks, there has been an increased effort to model geothermal reservoirs with detailed pore structures. In this work, the effect of heat extraction on advancement of cold front in both reservoir and surrounding host rock will be discussed. A segment of the deep sedimentary basin consists of high permeable fracture in a region with high temperature gradient is modeled. The influence of variable permeability on heat transfer within reservoir will be numerically investigated. COMSOL Multiphysics is used to generate models with different permeability
distribution for host rock.
