  • The American Physical Society and IBM co-sponsor a research internship program for undergraduate women. The goal is to encourage women students to pursue graduate studies in science and engineering. The internships are salaried positions typically 10 weeks long at one of three IBM research locations (San Jose, CA, Austin, TX, or Yorktown Heights, NY), and give the opportunity to work closely with an IBM mentor. The Watson and Almaden lab has a full range of research and the Austin lab focuses on software and systems. Research areas of the internship are individually chosen so as to optimize the match between the skills and interests of the student, and the ongoing research programs of the laboratory.

    Eligibility:
    -Be a sophomore or junior at a U.S. college/university
    -Must be female
    -Major in chemistry, physics, materials science/engineering, computer science/engineering, chemical, electrical, mechanical engineering, or biology with an emphasis on one of the other areas listed
