US Department of Energy Science Graduate Student Research Program Now Accepting Applications 

The US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications from graduate students for doctoral dissertation/thesis research opportunities at DOE national laboratories. The program provides supplemental awards for PhD students to conduct part of their thesis research at a DOE laboratory for 3 to 12 consecutive months. Applications are due 16 May 2017 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students' overall doctoral thesis by providing supplemental funds for awardees to conduct part of their thesis research at a host DOE laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist within a defined award period. SCGSR has identified six priority research areas for the SCGSR 2017 Solicitation 1 and applicants must be pursuing graduate research in an area aligned with one or more of these: advanced scientific and computing research, basic energy sciences, biological and environmental research, fusion energy sciences, high energy physics, and nuclear physics.
