We are working to have the 2022 apprenticeship program in-person at the Berkeley Lab site. However, pending public health circumstances, the program may still need to be virtual. Participants will meet from Monday through Friday for the duration of the program. There are expectations for group and independent work.
The curriculum will include an introduction to python course, data science, and a number of scientific projects and experiments. Participants will be provided with the necessary materials to complete projects and interact with researchers and operations staff. All participants will give a final presentation.
Participants will be eligible for a monetary stipend during the middle and at the conclusion of the program. Students are paid for 40 hours/week (8 hours/day).
Orientation and Paperwork Sessions: This will be an introduction to the program and to help students go over the required paperwork. Participants must attend at least one session to complete paperwork.
