Students often participate in internships and receive formal training in their chosen career fields during college, but some pursue professional development opportunities even earlier.

Mike Kass and Jim Parks

Two transportation researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Mike Kass and Jim Parks, have been named SAE (Society of Automobile Engineers) fellows.

Michelle Kidder

Michelle Kidder, a researcher at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been selected as the 2019 recipient of the US C3E Research Award.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory entrance sign

Nine scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have been named to the 2019 Highly Cited Researchers list released by the Web of Science Group.

Jeremy Busby

Jeremy Busby, director of the Reactor and Nuclear Systems Division at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been elected fellow of the American Nuclear Society for his contributions to developing materials for nuclear energy systems.

Summit supercomputer

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science announced allocations of supercomputer access to 47 science projects for 2020.

Van-der-Waals layered CuInP2S6 has different properties depending on the locations of copper atoms (orange spheres). Unified theory and experiment led to the discovery of two co-existing phases which are connected through a quadruple energy well whose properties can be harnessed to provide materials with new functions.

A scientific team from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Vanderbilt University has made the first experimental observation of a material phase that had been predicted but never seen.

Nanofabricated “golden lollipop” helps researchers observe Fano interference using electron microscopy techniques at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Electrons in atoms are pretty talented. They can form chemical bonds, get kicked out of the atom and even “jump” to different locations based on their energetic states.

St John's CyberForce team

Oak Ridge National Laboratory will give college students the chance to practice cybersecurity skills in a real-world setting as a host of the Department of Energy’s fifth collegiate CyberForce Competition on Nov. 16. The event brings together student teams from across the country to compete at 10 of DOE’s national laboratories.
