Experience that supports your education and career goals
The Physical and Life Sciences Directorate offers a broad range of educational opportunities to train the next generation of scientists to conduct innovative basic science research to meet important national needs.
Our signature summer programs include:
Every year PLS is involved in the National Nuclear Physics Summer School (NNPSS) . During June 2015 we hosted the NNPSS at Lake Tahoe, California:
PLS also participates in the Data Science Summer Institute Program .
Other opportunities for student research support at LLNL can be found on the LLNL Scholars page.
It’s rare for an undergraduate science student to appear as an author on a scientific journal paper, and when they do, theirs is usually the last name on the list. However, Elizabeth Sangalang, a graduating senior studying biochemistry at California State University East Bay, has landed a second-author credential through the research she completed as a summer intern at LLNL.
