Are you an undergraduate or graduate student interested in harnessing the power of High-Performance Computing (HPC) to advance energy equity? If so, we invite you to participate in our upcoming Intro to HPC Bootcamp at the National Energy Research Scientific Computer Center (NERSC), August 7-11, 2023.
The bootcamp is hosted by the Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) Computing Facilities at Argonne National Lab (ALCF), Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (NERSC), and Oak Ridge National Lab (OLCF) and organized by Sustainable Horizons Institute. Designed to provide students in STEM domains with hands-on experience utilizing HPC for energy justice initiatives, this immersive program allows students to work on energy justice projects of their interest while learning the fundamentals of HPC, including parallel computing, job scheduling, and data analysis techniques. No prior experience with HPC is required.
Selected participants are eligible to receive housing, travel, per diem, and a $500 stipend. During the bootcamp, you will have the opportunity to:
- Collaborate with like-minded peers and learn from leading experts in HPC and energy justice, who will provide in-depth instruction throughout the program.
- Gain practical experience through interactive coding sessions and workshops, where you will apply HPC techniques to real-world energy justice projects.
- Access cutting-edge HPC resources, including powerful computing clusters and specialized software, to develop and execute your energy justice projects.
- Present your completed projects to a panel of mentors for feedback and recognition.
To participate in the bootcamp, please submit your application by May 22, 2023 at Introduction to HPC Bootcamp Application Site.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to develop valuable skills in HPC while making a meaningful impact on energy justice projects! If you have any questions or concerns please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Building Defense Research Capacity at HBCUs, TCUs, HSIs and ANNHSIs: Town Hall on Transformational and Transactional Culture Shifts for Capacity Development (April 24-25, 2023)
A new hybrid workshop series will examine the key issues highlighted in the consensus study report, Defense Research Capacity at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other Minority Institutions: Transitioning from Good Intentions to Measurable Outcomes (2022).
Discussions in the series will explore how to facilitate and sustain “true Partnerships” between HBCUs/TCUs/HSIs/ANNHSIs and academic institutions with very high research activity (R1) and the steps necessary to increase defense-related research capacity.
Webinar: Dear Colleague Letter on Expanding Institutional Diversity in Support STEM Research and Education Capacity
Hello HBCU-UP Colleagues,
We hope this message finds you well. Please join us for an informative webinar on Friday, April 14 covering the new Dear Colleague Letter on Expanding Institutional Diversity in Support STEM Research and Education Capacity (23-081) at 12:00 pm (ET). Zoom information is provided below. Please mark your calendars.
This DCL highlights types of proposals that may be submitted to the HBCU-UP program to align with CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 in supporting innovative approaches for building research capacity in order to engage and retain students from a range of institutions and diverse backgrounds in STEM. Funding is available to support the following types of activities:
- develop or expand STEM research and education programs;
- recruit faculty and offer professional development, including opportunities for early-career STEM researchers;
- provide stipends for undergraduate and graduate students participating in STEM research and education;
- improve research capacity via the acquisition of instrumentation;
- conduct an assessment of STEM capacity-building and research infrastructure needs;
- aid in administrative research development; and
- enhance other activities necessary to build STEM research and education capacity.
Note – there are two DCL webinars on April 14 of interest to our community. HBCU-UP DCL 23-081 at 12:00 pm (ET) and HBCU-EiR DCL 23-067 at 3:00 pm (ET), announced on an earlier email.

Northeastern University Future Faculty Post-doctoral Fellowship Program
Northeastern University and the ADVANCE Office of Faculty Development invite applications from candidates for the 2023-2024 Northeastern University Future Faculty Post-doctoral Fellowship Program.
Northeastern University’s mission emphasizes translational research that addresses global challenges and enhances social well-being. Moreover, the university strives to create a vibrant and diverse community, characterized by collaboration, creativity, and unwavering commitment to excellence. Northeastern University celebrates diversity in all its forms and fosters a culture of respect that affirms inter-group relations and builds community.
Consistent with Northeastern’s mission, vision, and core values, the objectives of the Future Faculty Post-doctoral Fellowship Program are:
- Introduce Northeastern University’s academic community to postdoctoral researchers who are considering faculty careers
- Enhance opportunities for those who are members of groups whose representation in faculty positions is smaller than their representation in the U.S. population. This includes women, racial and ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, first-generation students, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. They must also show a demonstrated commitment to an inclusive faculty and an inclusive academic experience for all students
- Prepare Future Faculty Post-doctoral Fellows for possible tenure-track appointments at Northeastern University
- Enhance the academic environment of Northeastern University by providing opportunities for students and faculty to gain experience in multicultural, broadly diverse, and inclusive work settings and research collaborations that improve the capacity of all their members
The complete Future Faculty Post-doctoral Fellowship description that includes eligibility, fellowship terms, and the link to apply can be found here.
