Students will perform research at national laboratories

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science selected three Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, or FRIB, graduate students at Michigan State University for the Office of Science Graduate Student Research program’s 2021 Solicitation 1 cycle. Through training and access to facilities and resources at DOE national laboratories, SCGSR prepares graduate students to enter jobs of critical importance to the DOE mission.

“The DOE Office of Science provides the scientific foundation for solutions to some of our nation’s most complex challenges, and now more than ever we need to invest in a diverse, talented pipeline of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs who can help us build a brighter future,” said Harriet Kung, deputy director for science programs in the Office of Science. “These outstanding students will help us tackle mission-critical research at our labs as this experience helps them begin a successful and rewarding career.”
