DOE laboratory staff provide practicum, post-doc and career insight at each summer's program review.

Department of Energy laboratory scientists and staff are an integral part of the DOE NNSA SSGF community. To stay involved with the program and fellowship community, they:

  • Attend the annual conference, interacting with fellows and other attendees, giving keynote talks and hosting booths at the DOE Laboratory Poster Session.
  • Serve as practicum coordinators, helping fellows find appropriate research mentors and providing assistance.
  • Host fellows during their practicums and collaborate with them on research.
  • Share information about career and employment opportunities at their laboratories.
  • Serve on the fellowship steering committee, giving advice on how to continually improve the program and learning opportunities for fellows.
  • Serve on the DOE NNSA SSGF Selection Committee to help choose a new class of fellows each year.
