Job/Internship Bulletin Board

The School of Engineering has created a bulletin board for internships, employment, faculty projects, and other opportunities. Please note that the bulletin board can only be accessed from Brown IP addresses (which means it can be accessed on campus, or through the campus VPN if off campus). This is required since it is not a public site.
