The National Science Foundation (NSF) Mathematical Sciences Graduate Internship (MSGI) Program provides opportunities for mathematical sciences doctoral students to participate in internships at federal national laboratories and research facilities.
What will I be doing?
You will spend your time learning the application of advanced mathematical and statistical techniques to "real world" problems, regardless of whether you plan to pursue an academic or nonacademic career. Internship activities will vary based on the assigned project and hosting facility. As part of your application, you will identify your top 3 projects from the 2020 NSF MSGI Project Catalog. You can review the catalog here: https://public.orau.org/sawd/nsf-msgi/SitePages/NSFCatalogView.aspx. Additional projects may be added to the catalog on an ongoing basis until November 30, 2019.
All projects are in disciplinary areas of the mathematical sciences supported by the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences: Algebra and Number Theory, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Combinatorics, Computational Mathematics, Foundations, Geometric Analysis, Mathematical Biology, Probability, Statistics, and Topology. Applicants are encouraged to review the information about DMS research areas at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/programs.jsp?org=DMS.
How long is the internship? Where will I be?
Internship appointments are for 10 consecutive weeks on site at the assigned hosting facility between the months of May and September. For a list of hosting facilities, please visit: https://orise.orau.gov/nsf-msgi/.
U.S. citizenship is not required for participation in this program. You must be enrolled as a full-time graduate student at an accredited U.S. college pursuing a doctoral degree in mathematics, statistics, or applied mathematics. First year doctoral students are eligible to apply.
25 openings. Employer will assist with relocation costs.
Additional Salary Information: Benefits: You will receive a stipend of $1,200 per week during the 10-week internship period. Transportation expenses for round trip travel costs up to $2,000 between the participant's U.S. residence and the assigned internship location will be provided to participants who live more than 50 miles from the hosting facility.
