Dare Mighty Things

An internship at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a chance to do the impossible. Here, you won’t be going on coffee runs -- unless that coffee needs to be harvested from the moon and you’re on the team that’s building the probe to do it. Our internships put you right in the action with the scientists and engineers who’ve helped make JPL the leading center for robotic exploration of the solar system. Our programs are as varied as the places we explore, with opportunities for undergrads, graduate students, postdocs and faculty. Join us and do something out of this world.
