Department of Energy laboratory staff, including a group of world-class scientists, are an integral part of the DOE CSGF community. Below are just a few of the ways they involve themselves in the program and fellowship community.
DOE laboratory staff:
- Participate at the annual program review, where they interact with fellows and other attendees, give keynote talks, and host booths at the DOE Laboratory Poster Session
- Serve as practicum coordinators, helping fellows find appropriate research mentors and providing assistance throughout their practicum experiences
- Host fellows during their practicum, collaborating on breaking research developments
- Attend regional social gatherings where they give thought-provoking talks, and provide informal mentoring and networking opportunities
Contribute to the private online community Wikipedia site, including
information about potential practicum and job opportunities
- Share information about career and job opportunities
" The DOE will have to be the go-to organization for what we face in this country. This agency, in my mind, is the key agency for the future of the U.S."
— Dr. Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy during his January 22, 2009 address to DOE national laboratory staff
In His Own Words...
"My practicum at Livermore led more or less directly to my current position at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The DOE CSGF is a great program, and since I benefited from it in so many ways, I've really appreciated the opportunity to expand my involvement with the program...
I've especially enjoyed the practicum coordinator role because it constantly introduces me to the current generation of fellows as they come along. It's been fascinating to watch the program as it evolves."
— Daniel Martin, DOE CSGF alumnus and practicum coordinator at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
