You are invited to participate in the Boulder, Colorado, Laboratories’ National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program for students majoring in science, mathematics, and engineering.

Applications for participation in the Boulder SURF program are accepted only on USAJobs.Gov. Opportunities are available in the fields of:

  • Chemical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Information Technology
  • Materials Science
  • Physics

We anticipate providing research opportunities for a limited number of SURFers occurring remotely. Note: The SURF Program will not be conducted virtually and not require travel to the Boulder, CO campus.

The SURF NIST Boulder Program will run from May 23 to August 5, 2022; adjustments may be made to accommodate specific academic schedules (e.g., quarter systems).

Offers will be made beginning around March 1st. Because we use a waiting list, successful applicants must accept or decline within 3-7 days of receiving an offer.

The 2022 SURF Program will be administered virtually. Prospective applicants must apply to the program by 11:59 PM (ET) February 15, 2022. Details pertaining to the vacancy announcement and questionnaire requirements can be found here.
