Workforce Development & Education

Working with our partners both within and outside Berkeley Lab, we promote equal access to scientific and technical careers for students from all backgrounds, support STEM teachers, and build scientific literacy through innovative education programs. We also support educational outreach efforts from Berkeley Lab’s divisions by providing program development assistance, materials, funding, volunteers, project management, marketing, and administrative support. Our mission is to inspire and prepare the next generation of scientists, engineers, technologists, and STEM professionals. We offer a range of programs for undergraduate, postbaccalaureate, graduate students, and faculty. Through these programs, people come to the Lab to participate in research internships, they collaborate and network with Lab STEM professionals, and share their skills and passion for science in the STEM community.

Department of Energy

Since the end of World War II, leadership in science has been critical to America’s security and prosperity. The DOE Office of Science plays a central role in sustaining that leadership. Established following World War II, we are the nation’s largest federal sponsor of basic research in the physical sciences and for decades have been a major supporter of research in such key scientific fields as physics, materials science, and chemistry. We are also the lead federal agency supporting fundamental scientific research related to energy. To keep America in the forefront of discovery and innovation, we sponsor research at hundreds of universities, national laboratories, and other institutions across the country. We also build and maintain a vitally important array of large-scale scientific facilities at the DOE national laboratories, which are used by thousands of researchers every year. The mission of DOE’s Office of Science is to deliver scientific discoveries and major scientific tools to transform our understanding of nature and advance the energy, economic, and national security of the United States.
