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.
