DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

Applications due – May 9

The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories. The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories/facilities.

The Office of Science Priority Research Areas for SCGSR Program are:

  • Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR)
  • Basic Energy Sciences (BES)
  • Biological and Environmental Research (BER)
  • Fusion Energy Sciences (FES)
  • High Energy Physics (HEP)
  • Nuclear Physics (NP)

Further information on the subtopics in each Priority Research Area can be found here:


Submit your research to Equilibrium

Equilibrium is a Warren undergraduate research publication. This research publication publishes research of talented UCSD undergraduates from all disciplines. Our goal is to make research more widespread across the undergraduate community and help students learn about the importance of research in society today and be inspired in pursuing research of their own.

We are currently accepting research submissions for the journal. Additionally, this journal would be a great place for students to publish their senior honors theses and advertise them to a wider community!

If students are interested in submitting research or have any questions, please have them contact us at We want this journal to highlight the students’ successes in research!

Smith College Postdoctoral Fellow

A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in David Gorin’s lab in the Chemistry Department at Smith College.  The Fellow will conduct research into the use of modified DNA molecules as chemical reagents to selectively modify one compound in a complex mixture (for our recent progress, see: Chem. Sci., 2018, 2105). There are extensive opportunities to directly mentor undergraduate researchers. The current postdoc in the lab is leaving to start a tenure-track job at a liberal arts college, and this position is potentially a great fit for someone intending to pursue a career at such an institution.
