The Institute for Advanced Composite Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) is
currently seeking graduate and undergraduate students interested in
participating in a short-term, 10-week summer program at one of IACMI’s
partner sites.
 
IACMI, which accelerates the adoption of advanced composites to create energy
savings and new manufacturing jobs, has an interest in developing the skills
of strong technical students who might one day support the workforce in both
talent and leadership. Interested applicants have the opportunity to apply
for internships specializing in various composite and materials research in
the following five technology areas at one of IACMI’s partner locations:
•Composite Materials for Compressed Gas Storage
Dayton, Ohio
•Design, Modeling and Simulation of Composite Materials
West Lafayette, Ind.
•Composite Materials and Process (one of these locations)
Knoxville, Tennessee
Nashville, Tennessee
Lexington, Kentucky
Plainview, New York
Port Angeles, Washington
•Composite Materials for Wind Turbines
Denver Area, Colorado
•Composite Materials for Vehicles (one of these locations)
East Lansing, Michigan
Detroit Area, Michigan
 
In addition to being involved in a variety of IACMI partner activities,
during the course of their internship, participants will have the opportunity
to use state-of-the-art equipment and interact with scientists and engineers
who are at the top of their fields. Specific project details may adapt with
research needs and may involve one or more of the 150 IACMI member
organizations, which represent industry, academia, and government partners.
 
To be eligible, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen and student in good
standing at a regionally accredited U.S. college or university and have a
minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 or the equivalent as verified by official
transcripts. All applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time of
appointment and provide proof of health insurance coverage. Participants will
have the opportunity to purchase health insurance coverage through ORAU.
 
Program participants will receive a weekly stipend based on hours of
participation, weekly housing allowance and limited in- and out-bound travel
reimbursement to and from the internship site. In addition, program
participants will have the opportunity to present and network with over 300
industry leaders at the IACMI members’ meeting in July.
 
Applications and supporting materials are being accepted online until Dec.
31, 2017.
