Program Information

The Singh Center and Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) are partnering to offer a paid summer internship opportunity for CCP students. Interns work for 20 hours per week during the 14-week internship. The application process is administered by CCP.

At the Singh Center, interns work in the Quattrone Nanofabrication Facility, or “cleanroom.” They learn the basics of nanofabrication through hands-on training on fabrication methods and cleanroom equipment operation and maintenance. Interns select a project for the summer, which provides a context that structures their work beyond general safety, equipment and basics of nanoscience training. Interns work with master’s students and Singh Center staff. They attend scientific talks, informal lab meetings, lectures and tutorials, as well as prepare and give talks. The summer internship is designed to provide an overview of nanoscience, meaningful hands-on experience with nanofabrication, and general professional and technical skills that would be important in many research and laboratory environments.
