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

High performance computing plays a critical role in scientific discovery, and researchers increasingly rely on advances in computer science, mathematics, computational science, data science, and large-scale computing and networking to increase our understanding of ourselves, our planet, and our universe. Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area researches, develops, and deploys new foundations, tools, and technologies to meet these needs and to advance research across a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit energy.gov/science.
