About the opportunity
The US Department of Energy is currently accepting applications for graduate residency fellowships at the National Nuclear Security Administration Laboratory. This program is intended for graduate students pursuing degrees in fields relevant to the stewardship of the nation’s nuclear stockpile: namely engineering and applied sciences, physics, materials, mathematics, and computational science. Fellowships include at least two 12-week research residencies at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, or the Nevada National Security Site. Fellows are encouraged to extend these residencies to carry out thesis research and other studies at these facilities.
US citizens who plan full-time, uninterrupted study toward a doctoral degree are encouraged to apply. Benefits include a $36,000 stipend, payment of full tuition and required fees, yearly program review participation, and professional development allowance. Fellowships are renewable for up to four years.
Please visit the program website here to see detailed application information. Applications must include academic transcripts, letters from a lab mentor and advisor, two additional reference letters, and information regarding your university’s residency policy. Submissions must be made online by March 17, 2021.
