You are invited to participate in the Boulder, Colorado, Laboratories' National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program for students majoring in science, mathematics, and engineering.
Applications for participation in the Boulder SURF program are accepted only on USAJobs.Gov. Opportunities are available in the fields of:
We anticipate providing research opportunities for approximately 22 SURFers at the NIST facilities in Boulder, Colorado.
The SURF NIST Boulder Program will run from May 18 to July 31, 2020; adjustments may be made to accommodate specific academic schedules (e.g., quarter systems).
Offers will be made beginning around March 1st. Because we use a waiting list, successful applicants must accept or decline within 7 days of receiving an offer.
The NIST site in Gaithersburg, Maryland, also operates a SURF program with the different application. Students are encouraged to review research opportunities in the SURF NIST Gaithersburg program. An application for one SURF program does not constitute an application for the other.
