Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education Training Opportunities

Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is a Department of Energy facility managed and operated by Oak Ridge Associated Universities. Its diverse array of complementary, and often unique, programs include the following:

  • Science education programs
  • Research and training in workforce health, safety, and security
  • Emergency preparedness and response
  • Radiological site characterization and cleanup verification
  • Technical training systems
  • Integrated scientific and technical expertise

ORISE Fellowship Program

The Research Participation Program for CDC, National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) and the Division of Laboratory Sciences (DLS) provides opportunities for members of the academic community (i.e., postgraduates, students, and faculty) to participate in DLS programs, projects, and activities. The program is administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). The goal of the ORISE Fellowship program is to enhance the educational programs offered by academic institutions, strengthen the scientific and technical manpower base, transfer knowledge and technology to the academic community, and support a growing national commitment to science education.

College and university faculty, students, and post-graduates are provided opportunities for hands-on participation in research and development activities at federal laboratories. To be eligible for the program,

  1. Postgraduate participants must have received a college degree within five years of the date of appointment,
  2. Student participants must be enrolled in an accredited U.S. college or university, and
  3. Faculty participants must be a full-time faculty member at an accredited U.S. college or university.

These requirements help ensure that participants are still engaged in formal education and that the experience will enhance their personal education and skills. As a result of these appointments, technology is introduced (or reintroduced) into the universities and colleges and integrated into campus-based instruction and research programs. The ORISE program provides opportunities for participants to

  • Enhance their professional development in science, mathematics, and engineering areas
  • Become familiar with the research areas of the Division of Laboratory Sciences
  • Develop as scientists and engineers for future employment in fields related to the DLS mission.
