The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is a leader in the U.S. Department of Energy’s effort to secure an energy future that is both environmentally and economically sustainable. With locations in Golden, Boulder and Washington D.C., NREL is the primary laboratory for research, development and deployment of renewable energy technologies in the United States. The NREL mission is to develop renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and practices, advance related science and engineering, and transfer knowledge and innovation to address the nation’s energy and environmental goals.
NREL's National Bioenergy Center (NBC) has an immediate opening for an undergraduate intern to contribute to the NBC plant cell wall research group as part of the BioEnergy Science Center.

Understanding the factors that affect plant cell wall recalcitrance is vital to developing new strategies for producing fuels from biomass feedstocks. The candidate will help with sample preparation associated with experiments to determine chemical differences in plant cell walls due to natural variation or to genetic manipulation of plant biosynthetic pathways.
This internship will primarily focus on assisting with the set-up and execution of laboratory experiments such as Molecular Beam Mass Spectrometry and enzyme mediated sugar release assays. This includes check-in and processing of dried, ground, biomass samples, extraction of biomass, and preparation of large numbers of samples for analysis. These tasks require the intern to effectively communicate with their mentor and other laboratory members about the expected work, progress toward completing that work, and any issues that arise. This internship will involve extensive time in a laboratory environment and it is essential for the intern to support a safe and efficient work environment.
Must be enrolled as a full-time student in a degree granting program, or graduated in the past 12 months from an accredited institution.

Internship period cannot exceed 12 months past graduation.

Minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.

Please Note:
Be sure to attach your current transcript (unoffical transcripts are acceptable) on the "Submit Attachments" Page during the application process in order for your GPA and student status to be verified.
The ideal candidate will be perusing a degree in Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering or related field. Detail orientated with an ability to focus on quality control. Excellent work ethic with the ability to work independently with minimal oversight.
