Faculty: Apply by Oct. 21 for Sustainable Pathways Fellowship Networking Event

Berkeley Lab Partnership Offers Computing Science Research Opportunities to Faculty, Students from Diverse Backgrounds

October 17, 2016


Faculty are invited to apply for the opportunity to attend a networking event with computing sciences staff at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, or Sandia National Laboratories, where scientists develop solutions to pressing scientific and engineering problems while making use of some of the fastest supercomputers, tools, methods, and high performance computing resources. The application deadline for the Sustainable Pathways Research Fellows event is Monday, Oct. 21.

Selected faculty will be invited to the networking event, held at Berkeley Lab on December 7-8, to explore possible collaborations of the faculty and their students with Lab research projects. 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 event, developed under a partnership between Sustainable Horizons Institute and three Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories, is designed for faculty from a variety of institution supporting students from under-represented or under-privileged backgrounds, such as minority serving institutions (MSI) and women’s and community colleges. 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.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory(Berkeley Lab) provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe. ESnet, the Energy Sciences Network, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 7,000-plus scientists at national laboratories and universities. NERSC and ESnet are both Department of Energy Office of Science National User Facilities. The Computational Research Division (CRD) conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation.

Berkeley Lab addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science. The DOE Office of Science is the United States' single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
