Subject: DOE SCGSR 2019 S2: Graduate Research Opportunities at DOE National Laboratories

Dear Dr. McClain:

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science is now accepting applications for the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program 2019 Solicitation 2. Applications are due 5:00pm Eastern Time on November 14, 2019.

I would like to bring to your attention 4 new research areas added to encourage activities at the convergence of multiple disciplines and communities, including Microelectronics, Data Science, Fundamental Symmetries, and Accelerator Science. We strongly encourage applications in these areas.

The SCGSR program provides doctoral dissertation/thesis research opportunities for graduate students at DOE national laboratories. Details about the program, research areas, and online application can be found athttps://science.osti.gov/wdts/scgsr/.

I would appreciate it very much if you could help distribute the program announcement to interested faculty members and graduate students in your institution and community. Please see the program announcement below right after my signature.

Sincerely,

Ping Ge

Subject: The DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications!

Dear Colleagues,

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 2019 Solicitation 2. Applications are due 5:00pm Eastern Time on Thursday, November 14, 2019.

Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: https://science.osti.gov/wdts/scgsr/.

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/facility 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/dissertation while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories/facilities. 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/facility during the award period.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 70 awards in 2019 Solicitation 2 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between June 15, 2020 and October 5, 2020.

Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to over 480 graduate awardees from 135 different U.S. universities to conduct thesis research at 18 DOE national laboratories/facilities across the nation.

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/facilities, and program administration support is provided by the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE).

For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge, at sc.scgsr.
