Sustainable Research Pathways 2018:
Celebrating Four Years of Success Bringing Leading Lab Researchers Together with Faculty and Students from Diverse Backgrounds
Imagine yourself visiting Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for a fast-paced workshop where you showcase your research, meet distinguished computing science staff at Berkeley Lab, and explore research opportunities! Read on to learn about summer research opportunities for you and/or your students!
Matching and Exploratory Workshop
To facilitate the possible matching of faculty and/or their students with lab research opportunities, selected faculty will be invited to a workshop on December 3-4, 2018, at Berkeley Lab. Computing Sciences staff will discuss their research projects and interests and invited faculty attendees will present their work during a poster blitz and poster session. Additional time will be designated for lab staff and faculty discussions to explore potential research collaborations and sponsored programs.
This workshop, developed under a partnership between Sustainable Horizons Institute and Berkeley Lab, is designed for faculty from a variety of institutions, including Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) and women’s, liberal arts, and community colleges, which support students such as: women, minorities, first generation scholars, and people with disabilities as well as those from under-privileged backgrounds. Faculty learn about opportunities for themselves and their students to engage in collaborative, cutting-edge research with Berkeley Lab computing scientists. Matched faculty will be invited to apply for summer research opportunities at Berkeley lab.
