SACP Summer 2008 Internship: PPG

PPG Industries is a world-leader in coating technologies. The Analytical department plays a key role in developing new products and supporting existing technologies.

In the past, PPG's Analytical Group has hired summer interns to provide a hands-on learning experience in an industrial analytical lab environment. They worked with trained professionals who are experts in enabling innovation and developing new methodologies to support R&D efforts and solve plant problems. The individuals were exposed to a variety of analytical techniques including spectroscopy, chromatography, microscopy, and wet chemical. Under the supervision of a degreed analyst, they also worked on method development projects.

The Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP) will sponsor two internships during the summer of 2008. Chemistry, chemistry education or biochemistry majors who are currently juniors are eligible for the program. Senior chemistry majors who plan to pursue graduate studies in the fall of 2008 may also apply. Internships are tentatively available at the following company and institution:
* Carnegie Science Center (see previous post)
* PPG Industries (this post) at the Coatings Innovation Center

Both internships are for approximately three months, with a monthly stipend of $1000.

Pleas submit:
1. a letter expressing your interests in chemistry
2. your first and second preferences for the location of your internship (Carnegie Science Center or PPG)
3. a letter of recommendation from your chemistry professor and/or chemistry advisor
4. a current transcript (does not have to be official)
5. current school and home addresses and telephone numbers
