Internship Program

The internship Program at Orthogonal Research and Education Laboratory (OREL) officially began in Spring 2022. Through collaboration with the University at Albany, State University of New York, and its Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression, students are able to gain experiential learning opportunities, with a particular focus on interdisciplinary research for early career researchers.

Through OREL, JORPO is able to partner with educational institutions for similar opportunities. If you are not affiliated with an educational institution, please reach out to JOPRO for non-academic opportunities within the Internship Program.
