The Lunar and Planetary Institute’s (LPI’s) mission is to advance understanding of the solar system by providing exceptional science, service, and inspiration to the world. It serves as an educational resource for research in lunar and planetary science to NASA and the scientific community.


One key goal is to excite and educate the public about space science and invests in the development of future generations of explorers. The research carried out at LPI supports NASA’s efforts to explore the solar system.


It is funded by Universities Space Research Association (USRA), an independent, nonprofit research corporation where the combined efforts of in-house talent and university-based expertise merge to advance space science and technology.


LPI Summer Intern Program in Planetary Science


The LPI Summer Intern Program in Planetary Science provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to perform cutting-edge research, learn from widely respected planetary scientists, and discover exciting careers in planetary science. During the 10-week internship, students have opportunities to participate in enrichment activities, including lectures and career development workshops.


Current listings for STEM careers are primarily postdoctoral but certainly interesting positions including Supervisory Branch Chief in Planetary Studies Research and Senior Scientist for Astrobiology at NASA Ames Research Center.
