Lin selected for DOE’s Science Graduate Student Research Program
Graduate student in inorganic chemistry with the College of Science at Purdue University, Nathan Lin, is one of only forty-four students from across the country to be selected by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science to be a part of the Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program.
Awardees were selected from a diverse pool of graduate applicants from institutions around the country based on merit review by external scientific experts.
Lin said, “I am excited to pursue research at Argonne National Lab (ANL) as this is a big step for my professional and academic development as a growing inorganic chemist. While working at ANL, I aspire to learn more in-depth techniques from experts in other fields and branch my PhD project to new horizons. Eventually, I hope to return with an even greater appreciation for the research at ANL and share my newfound knowledge and experience with rising researchers here at Purdue.”
SCGSR awardees work on research projects of significant importance to the Office of Science mission that address critical energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges at national and international scales
Since 2014, the SCGSR program has provided more than 919 U.S. graduate awardees from 155 universities with supplemental funds to conduct part of their thesis research at a host DOE laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist
