The Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (MSIPP) Internships is a new program to promote the education and development of the next generation workforce in critical science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) related disciplines that complement current and future missions of DOE national laboratories. The MSIPP Internship program is designed to provide an enhanced training environment for next generation scientists and engineers by exposing them to research challenges unique to our industry.
MSIPP Interns will be given the opportunity to complete Summer Internships aligned with ongoing U.S. Department of Energy Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM) research under the direction of a host national laboratory. The internship will be performed at the host national laboratory, utilizing their facilities and equipment under the guidance of a research staff member.
Minority Serving Institutions are institutions of higher education enrolling populations with significant percentages of undergraduate minority students.
The physical properties research will cover three topics:
Microfluidic bump array support - Conduct and evaluate lab testing of an advanced Mesofluidic Bump array particle separation filter to help establish and confirm mathematical correlations related to gravitational and spacing relationship for purposes of design.
Particle pocket angle testing and correlations
Turbulent settling Models - Test new particle settling models against existing data sets to determine the performance of the combined Turbulent settling Models.
