underGraduate Research Educational Academic Traineeships in Nuclear Science (GREAT-NS) @ Berkeley Lab

The underGraduate Research Educational Academic Traineeships in Nuclear Science (GREAT-NS) @ Berkeley Lab program is a paid undergraduate internship program taking place at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), San Jose State University (SJSU), the University of California, Merced (UCM) and the University of California, Riverside (UCR). GREAT-NS fellows will be mentored through a 2-year traineeship program in Nuclear Science by Berkeley Lab scientists, professors at SJSU, UCM and UCR and will make contributions to leading research in:

  • Low energy nuclear structure

  • Medical isotope production

  • Fundamental properties of neutrinos

  • Nuclear physics for applications in nuclear and homeland security and proliferation detection

  • Synthesis of new elements

  • Nuclear data

  • Relativistic heavy ion physics

  • Target production for nuclear physics

Trainees will not only have the chance to work side-by-side in world-leading research groups, but will also be given the resources and opportunities to form connections with their fellow trainees, and also to network broadly in the field of nuclear science. Additionally, the Traineeship program includes a series of introductory sessions to learn the basics of nuclear science and the tools used, before signing on to a specific project.
