The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), in collaboration with the 6 Office of Science research programs and the DOE national laboratories. Online application and awards administration support is provided by Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE) under Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU).
Graduate students currently pursuing Ph.D. degrees in areas of physics, chemistry, material sciences, biology (non-medical), mathematics, engineering, computer or computational sciences, or specific areas of environmental sciences that are aligned with the mission of the Office of Science are eligible to apply for the supplemental research awards provided by the SCGSR program. Eligible graduate students must apply online.
They seek highly motivated applicants with the courage and passion to transcend boundaries in order to discover fundamental principles of biology. The ideal candidate will be creative, have a strong background in cell biology and biochemistry, and enjoy working independently as well as collaboratively. Learn more.

Some models of science communication focus on “filling the deficit” of knowledge, while others emphasize “dialogue” among different groups. Data shows that levels of knowledge don’t correlate very well with attitudes towards science. What’s more, neither model deals well with people who actively deny knowledge that scientists see as extremely reliable (such as evolution or the relationship of autism and vaccines). So what are the implications for science communicators as they plan their activities?
Bruce Lewenstein is Professor of Science Communication at Cornell University. He works primarily on the history of public communication of science and has been very active in international activities that contribute to education and research on public communication of science and technology, especially in the developing world. In general, he tries to document the ways that public communication of science is fundamental to the process of producing reliable knowledge about the natural world.
