Within Computing Sciences (CS), we recognize that managing diversity requires a comprehensive approach to creating a work environment that values all people and empowers employees to reach their full potential in pursuit of Computing Sciences and Laboratory goals and objectives.
As such, Computing Sciences' hiring practices encourage diversity and help to develop a diverse workforce.
Staff members also work with Bay Area schools, support conferences and volunteer with outside programs to help develop the next generation of scientists and engineers and, in particular, strive to engage members of under-represented groups.
Berkeley Lab will welcome five Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellows (CSGF) this year. Drawing from diverse scientific and engineering disciplines, the fellows share a common interest in using computing in their research. Each of these talented students is pursuing a doctoral degree in a field that uses high-performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems. Read More »

Yuba Colleges students and chaperones wrap up their tour of the machine room with a group shot with Cori. Students from the Yuba College Upward Bound program visited Berkeley Lab on Friday, January 11, where they learned about high-performance computing and networking, then toured the NERSC machine room and the Advanced Light Source. In all, 28 students and chaperones participated in the visit, which was hosted by the lab's Federal and Community Relations Office. Upward Bound is a federally… Read More »
Nearly 30 faculty members from schools all over the U.S. attended the latest Sustainable Research Pathways matching workshop, held December 4, 2018 in Berkeley Lab’s Shyh Wang Hall. Read More »
With 16 teams from four continents competing, this year's Student Cluster Competition at SC18 reflects the diversity embodied in one local team: Oakland’s Laney College. Now in its 12th year, the Student Cluster Competition at SC was developed to immerse undergraduate and high school students in high performance computing. In this real-time, non-stop, 48-hour challenge, teams of students assemble small computer clusters on the exhibit floor, racing to complete real-world workloads across a… Read More »
It’s all about opportunity, according to Dan Rosa de Jesús and Julián Cuevas, two students from the University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez (UPRM) who are spending their summer in Computing Sciences at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) learning everything they can about deep learning and how it can improve protein structure prediction, a grand challenge in structural biology. The two came to the lab in June as part of the Sustainable Research Pathways (SRP) internship… Read More »
