Due to health and safety concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, Oak Ridge National Laboratory has temporarily suspended new internship and research associate appointments for most programs. The suspension does not affect the Community College Internships (CCI) and Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI)programs, which are continuing to offer some virtual appointments.

Current ORISE participants: Current participants at ORNL may be able to fulfill the remainder of their appointments remotely, with mentor approval. Please consult with your mentor to determine the best path forward. You can refer to ORNL’s COVID-19 advisory for information on actions being taken at the Lab.

Applicants: Applicants to ORISE opportunities at ORNL will remain under consideration once programs resume. You are encouraged to continue to apply to open opportunities, which are detailed here. You may also explore other ORISE opportunities around the country through Zintellect.

If you have any questions, please contact ORISE at ORNLedu@orau.org.
