This summer, there will be two opportunities for Georgia Tech faculty to visit Oak Ridge National Lab. Are you curious about the kinds of collaborations and facilities you could access by working with researchers at Oak Ridge National Lab? Are you interested in Department of Energy funding for your research? Do you want to see how DoE researchers 3D-printed a car? If so, then consider joining one of two road trips to Oak Ridge National Lab for early career and/or life sciences faculty at Georgia Tech. Each group of 12 faculty members will depart Georgia Tech by car in the afternoon of either Monday May 15th (early career) or Monday June 5th (life sciences or early career) and return late in the evening of the next day. Georgia Tech’s ORNL core university liaison office will pay for one night of hotel for each faculty member, per-diem meals, and mileage/gas reimbursement for drivers who allow their cars to be used for the road trip, with other faculty as passengers. Oak Ridge, Tennessee, is about 200 miles from Atlanta and the drive takes about 3.5 hours from Georgia Tech.
At ORNL, you will be hosted by Dr. Ian Anderson, Director of Graduate Education and University Partnerships. He will guide the group through a full-day schedule on the Tuesday of each trip consisting of meetings with directors, group leaders, scientists, and engineers, as well as tours of facilities including some combination of the Spallation Neutron Source, the Supercomputing Center (home to the world’s second most powerful computer – at least for now!), the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences, and the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility.
