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.

Magnetic Momentum Scholars Program


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 program is a partnership between the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida A&M University, designed to expose a diverse group of FAMU students to career paths in MagLab-related STEM fields. This paid, 7-week exploratory program pairs interns with STEM mentors who will show them MagLab applications related to their STEM courses. Students will explore various areas of a scientific working environment, learn new skills, 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.


Trainees will be expected to work 20 hours per week, complete a mandatory safety training at the beginning of the program, and develop a culminating presentation that summarizes their experience.

Student trainees must be 18 or older, have appropriate technology to participate in virtual meetings (when necessary), and be able to obtain their own transportation to the Lab during on-site work hours. For those in need of transportation, please note that there is a bus route available from FAMU to the MagLab.

Program Goals

The Magnetic Momentum Scholars Program at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory seeks to:

  1. Expose a diverse group of college students to STEM careers at the MagLab.
  2. Increase interest in pursuing a career in a MagLab related STEM field by engaging students with quality mentors.
  3. Expand student’s professional network through participation in mentored experiences and professional development.
  4. Create structures to help support student’s ability to gain at least 1 new skill by the end of the program.
