The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2014 solicitation. Applications are due 5:00pm ET on Wednesday September 24, 2014.
The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 to 12 consecutive months—with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.
The SCGSR program is open to current Ph.D. students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. 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. The supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory during the award period.
The Office of Science expects to make approximately 100 awards in 2014, for project periods beginning anytime between January and September 2015.
Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: http://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/.
Program descriptions for the Office of Science’s six research program offices are summarized below to provide the context for the scientific and technical areas of priority interest to the Office of Science.
I. Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR)
- Applied Mathematics
- Computer Science
II. Basic Energy Sciences (BES)
III. Biological and Environmental Research (BER)
- Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
- Plant Breeding Science for Sustainable Bioenergy
- Environmental System Science
IV. Fusion Energy Sciences (FES)
V. High Energy Physics (HEP)
VI. Nuclear Physics (NP)
The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), in collaboration with the six Office of Science research programs offices and the DOE national laboratories, and the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE).
