The Northwestern-Argonne Institute for Science and Engineering (NAISE) is sponsoring several undergraduates to work with Argonne scientists and engineers this summer. Although students can work in any area, projects in the areas of synthetic biology, machine learning and optimization, energy storage, materials and imaging, and transportation are particularly of interest.
Argonne offers an Educational Assistance benefit, which may fund some or all of an employee’s education costs, such as tuition, fees and books, for approved offsite classes at accredited colleges and universities. The benefit can assist employees pursuing a course of study related to current or anticipated job responsibilities and must be approved … Read More »
