    Carleton alum Nat Beagley ’94 is looking for interns for the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington. He is part of PNNL’s Statistical Sciences Group, whose website indicates “We regularly develop and/or apply data mining methods, multivariate analysis techniques, classification/clustering, simulation, error/uncertainty propagation, prediction, experimental design, time series analysis, and sample survey design. For more information about our group, please visit http://www.pnl.gov/Statistics/.” Beagley indicated in his email to us that “a lot of our projects are statistics based but we also do a lot of computational data analysis so students with a computer science background or interest/experience working with data (data mining, visualization, natural language processing, etc…) are also encouraged to apply.” Interested? Check out the above web page on the group itself, or the internship web page at http://science-ed.pnl.gov/undergrad/fellowships.stm.
