Research Opportunity at UC San Francisco

UC San Francisco will be recruiting a junior research assistant to their laboratory soon!

It’s a great way to get solid training before grad/med school.

They are a new lab, so there is ample opportunity for exciting work in cell biology and biochemistry. They primarily work on sub-cellular clocks and the cell cycle!

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

https://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/

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:
