DOE's Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications!

Recommended Posts

TES and SBR PI's,

The US Department of Energy is pleased to announce the Office of Science's Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) is now accepting applications for the new Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program for the 2015. The SCGSR program will support supplemental awards to graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months. The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories. The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students' overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories. Priority research areas for the 2015 SCGSR competition were identified to help address important workforce needs in support of Office of Science mission. The priority research areas for the 2015 SCGSR competition can be viewed at: http://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/how-to-apply/priority-sc-research-areas/.

Specific details and information on eligibility and how to apply can be found at the program website: http://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/.
If you have any questions, please contact the SCGSR program manager, Dr. Ping Ge. She can be reached at ping.ge@science.doe.gov or sc.scgsr@science.doe.gov.

Additionally, a separate program focus on Undergraduate internships is sponsored in the Office of Science. The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission. Applications for the SULI program are solicited annually for three separate internship terms. Internship appointments are 10 weeks in duration for the Summer Term (May through August) or 16 weeks in duration for the Fall (August through December) and Spring (January through May) Terms. Each DOE laboratory/facility offers different research opportunities; not all DOE laboratories/facilities offer internships during the Fall and Spring Terms. More information can be found at http://science.energy.gov/wdts/suli/.

We would very much appreciate your assistance in sharing this information with your colleagues, collaborators at universities and national laboratories who are conducting research in the priority research areas of the 2015 solicitation, by forwarding the program announcement below to them.
