Education requirements


Area of Responsibilities



  • Seeking full- or part-time graduate or highly qualified undergraduate intern to work with researchers in NREL’s Center for Integrated Mobility Sciences on data processing, analysis, and model development for mobility behavior and advanced vehicle/transportation technologies, and to support related projects and programs. Specific tasks may include:
  • Develop and refine data processing workflows for transportation data such as travel surveys and model outputs for use in data dashboards, standalone visualizations, subsequent analyses, and for archiving.
  • Respond to requests for access to the Transportation Secure Data Center (TSDC) secure portal environment and ensure security protocols are maintained.
  • Assist NREL researchers on projects providing insights into transportation energy systems, with a focus on how emerging transportation systems impact travel behavior, quality of life, and energy use.
  • Work with and analyze large quantities of real-world travel activity and vehicle driving data, and potentially leverage high-performance computing resources for larger scale analyses.
  • Quantify and visualize Mobility Energy Productivity (MEP) and impacts on MEP from emerging transportation technologies and paradigms such as vehicle automation, electrification and sharing.
  • Deliver quality products that synthesize external literature, data analyses, and modeling results.
  • Document methods and assumptions and assist with preparing peer-reviewed publications along with high-quality technical reports and presentations.

Application process

  • Please include all relevant experience and qualification information on the uploaded PDF (or MS Word) copy of your resume or CV. Ideally, please also add a link to your GitHub (or GitLab, etc.) profile and ensure that as many repos as possible are public.
