Want to take part in a professional learning experience at the world's largest and highest-powered magnet lab? There are many pathways to intern at the National MagLab. 

Host Institution Internship Programs

Because the MagLab is a partnership across three sites, internship opportunities are available through Florida State University in Tallahassee, the University of Florida in Gainesville and Los Alamos National Lab in Los Alamos, New Mexico:

  • The InternFSU program provides on-campus paid experiential learning opportunities for currently enrolled full-time, undergraduate, degree-seeking FSU students during the Fall and Spring semesters.
  • Gator CareerLink is a free service that provides incredible access to internships, co-ops, job shadowing, part and full-time job opportunities.
  • Los Alamos National Lab supports a robust student internship program with opportunities for high school, undergraduates and graduate students to intern at the lab.

You may also search MagLab scientists directly for more specific internship opportunities based on their research area or scientific specialization.

The Magnetic Momentum Scholars Program: Diversifying Innovation in STEM is a partnership between the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida A&M University designed to expose a diverse student population to career paths in MagLab related STEM fields. Students will participate in activities and assignments designed to guide them in expanding their knowledge of physics, chemistry, engineering, materials research/development, machining and/or biology. Students will explore various areas of a scientific working environment, gain insight on a variety of STEM careers, and participate in professional development activities designed to build confidence as they prepare for future success in the STEM workforce.


7 weeks during Spring semester (January – March)

Applications are typically available online in August/September and notifications of acceptance are sent in late October/early November.


This is a paid, 7-week exploratory program that will provide a hybrid model for students to participate in both virtual and in-person activities at the MagLab. Trainees will be expected to work up to 20 hours per week and complete a mandatory safety training prior to the start of the program. Student trainees must be 18 or older, have appropriate technology to participate in virtual meetings (when necessary), and be able to obtain his/her own transportation to the MagLab during on-site work hours and/or FSU main campus (if/when necessary). For those in need of transportation, there is a bus route from FAMU to the MagLab.

Program Goals

The Magnetic Momentum Scholars Program at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory seeks to expose a diverse group of college students to STEM careers at the Lab.
