Following on last year's successful inaugural event, the Computing Sciences Area invites applications for 20 slots in the Second Annual CS Area Postdoc Symposium event to be held February 11-12, 2021. 

Designed to provide area postdocs with communications training, mentorship, and coaching sessions, plus an opportunity to present their research in a public forum, the event includes a workshop and dry run, and then formal research presentations to the wider Lab community.

Workshop, February 4-10 

A presentation development workshop, including an individual slide lay-down (30 minutes review and critique of draft presentations), takes place on February 4, 5, and 8. Then, on February 9-10, participants do a formal presentation dry-run with feedback from senior CS Area Staff (40 minutes).

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe.

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.
