The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to address a workforce shortfall in critical technical topic areas by training graduate students in specific disciplines or sub-disciplines aligned with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce needs in the area of instrumentation, particularly as they apply to HEP’s mission-space.
The DOE SC program in High Energy Physics (HEP) is interested in receiving applications for the DOE Traineeship in HEP Instrumentation, which will provide support to address critical, targeted workforce development in fields of interest to the DOE mission. Up to two cooperative agreements may be awarded to provide funding to universities or consortia of universities to support tuition, stipend, and travel costs for students enrolled in specific academic programs aimed at training graduate students in the physics and technology of detectors and instrumentation for HEP and related fields, and to provide modest support for curriculum development and program administration. Award terms are expected to be up to five years, with the possibility of renewal for a second term. This program does not support dedicated research efforts to develop new technologies for HEP; such efforts are supported through the HEP Detector research and development subprogram.
