Fellows gain exposure to practicum, post-doc and employment opportunities at the annual DOE Laboratory Poster Session.

Students involved in the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF) program are part of an innovative group charged with advancing our understanding of areas important to stewardship science: high energy density physics, nuclear science, and materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics. An annual program review makes it possible for these future leaders to get together, share ideas with peers, meet academic and DOE leaders in their field, and discover research opportunities available at DOE NNSA laboratories.

The fifth-annual DOE NNSA SSGF program review took place July 20-22 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia, and featured:

  • Valuable insight from keynote speakers
  • Presentations by each of the fellows completing their degree in 2011
  • Insight into student research during the Fellows' Poster Session
  • Information regarding practicum opportunities during the DOE Laboratory Poster Session
  • Access to a special workshop aimed at explaining research clearly and engagingly to important audiences
  • An invitation to the DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Program's HPC Workshop
  • Opportunities to network with program fellows, alumni, academic faculty and DOE NNSA laboratory leaders
