In order to help students and professionals from underrepresented groups in the area of computational science benefit from mentoring activities and succeed in their professional endeavors, the Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities in IT (CMD-IT) is developing a pilot professional development workshop. Focused on senior graduate students and post-docs, and laboratory professional junior staff from underrepresented groups in the area of computational science, the primary goal of this program is to mentor participants on successful strategies for navigating the professional ladder and becoming familiar with the various opportunities in computational science at the Department of Energy (DOE)’s national laboratories. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their research. The workshop will focus on the following underrepresented groups: African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and People with Disabilities.
Senior doctoral students and junior staff in the broad area of computational science can submit applications. Participant costs will be covered by a grant from the DOE’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research program.
The workshop is being organized in collaboration with representatives from Argonne National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, the Alliance for Access to Computing Careers (AccessComputing), Project ENABLE, Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI), andEL Alliance.
The deadline for applications is Tuesday, April 10. Visit the application site for additional information.
