Sustainable Research Pathways: Building Connections Across Diverse Communities with Computing Sciences at DOE Labs

Research Opportunities For Faculty and Students from Diverse Backgrounds

Imagine yourself and/or your students spending the summer of 2017 collaborating with computing sciences staff at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, or Sandia National Laboratories, developing solutions to pressing scientific and engineering problems while making use of some of the fastest supercomputers, tools, methods, and high performance computing resources.

Networking and Exploratory Meeting

To facilitate the matching of faculty and their students to Lab research opportunities, selected faculty will be invited to a meeting at Berkeley Lab on December 6-7, 2016. Computing sciences staff will discuss their research projects and interests. Invited faculty will present their work during a poster blitz and poster session. Ample time will be provided for further discussions to explore potential research collaborations and sponsored programs.

This meeting, developed under a partnership between Sustainable Horizons Institute and three Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories, is designed for faculty from a variety of institutions including Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) and women’s and community colleges, who are supporting students from under-represented or under-privileged backgrounds. Faculty will learn about opportunities for themselves and their students to engage in collaborative leading-edge research with computing scientists at participating DOE National Labs.
