Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth LLC (Fluor-BWXT) is accepting applications from bachelor’s and master’s students for its 2016 paid summer internship program through March 3. Fluor-BWXT is the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) contractor for the decontamination and decommissioning of the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (PORTS) in Piketon, Ohio.
Internship programs with Fluor-BWXT provide an exciting opportunity to spend a summer working with a team of experienced professionals dedicated to the environmental remediation of the former PORTS site. Interns will have the opportunity to apply traditional academic classroom learning from fields such as engineering, business support and health and science to actual, hands-on work experience.
Students will contribute to a number of exciting projects. Examples of some of the typical types of assignments include: supporting the development and integration of programs/projects, assisting in the development of sub-contract terms and conditions, participating in process improvement initiatives, analyzing proposals, assisting with public events, preparing and or reviewing estimates and reports, updating procedures and plans, and assisting with field observations.
To be eligible, applicants must have at least two semesters or three quarters of course work toward a specified degree relevant to Fluor-BWXT’s scope of work, study at Ohio University or another participating school in the region and have a GPA of at least 3.0.
Internships typically cover a 12-week period, with students generally arriving in May or June.
