HRL's internship program is designed to provide students with valuable hands-on technical experience working with some of the world's leading experts in their fields. By working side by side with HRL researchers, interns gain invaluable professional work experience and greater insight into a research career at HRL. You'll also get a feel for our unique culture and commitment to technical achievement and excellence.
Internships are paid technical summer assignments. While undergraduates and graduates are considered for internship positions, interns primarily include graduate-level students with relevant university work or research experience in chemistry, computer science, electrical engineering, material science, mathematics or physics. Interns may be eligible to return to HRL during subsequent summers based on satisfactory job performance and the company's research needs.
To ensure compliance with US export laws and regulations, applicants must meet the eligibility requirements of US citizenship or permanent resident alien status. Some jobs also may require security clearance.
