Applications are currently being accepted for the Summer 2023 term of the DOE Office of Science’s Visiting Faculty Program (VFP). The program seeks to enhance both the research competitiveness and STEM teaching capacities for faculty members at institutions historically underrepresented in the STEM research enterprise to expand the workforce vital to DOE mission areas.
Given this focus, VFP strongly supports faculty members from minority serving institutions (MSIs), including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Typically, about 50% of the participants are from MSIs, one-third of which are HBCUs. Selected college and university faculty members collaborate with DOE laboratory scientific research staff on research projects of mutual interest.
