I am incredibly proud of Berhe lab grad students Kimber Moreland and Morgan Barnes for receiving DOE’s Office of Science Graduate Student Research Program (SCGSR) fellowships that provide students with thesis research opportunities at Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories. The fellowships are designed to allow science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) graduate students to utilize the resources available at national laboratory sites, such as equipment and the expertise of DOE laboratory scientists. Most fellows remain at a site for three to 12 months. In order to apply, graduates must provide a SCGSR research proposal in partnership with a DOE laboratory research scientist, and in collaboration with their graduate thesis advisor.
As part of their fellowship research Kimber is spending time at the Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry at the Lawrence Livermore Lab and Morgan is spending time at the Environmental Molecular Sciences laboratory at the Pacific Northwest National Lab.
