The ISCR manages an extensive program for hosting a wide range of guests throughout the year.
The single largest intensive effort is the Summer Program, which can bring as many as 90
students and 20 faculty members to LLNL. Faculty can also arrange for longer-term, sabbatical
visits that can range from 3-12 months. The ISCR also serves as the host to University of California
CS graduate students whose academic program is funded through the Lawrence Scholar Program. These students have LLNL mentors and work on LLNL assignments part-time
during the school year and full-time during the summers.
ISCR also provides opportunities for shorter-duration interactions with LLNL, which are not limited to academia.
Visiting Scientists and Scholars are researchers from academia or industry that often need intermittent access
to LLNL staff (and resources) where funding is not the critical issue. This status permits the visitor an
appropriate security clearance and the ability to quickly arrange for on-site visits with LLNL staff over a
period of one month to two years. "Invited Guests" status describes the more routine single visit
for a limited period of time. The purpose of both of these kinds of arrangements is to enable easy interactions
between visitors and staff to explore research areas of mutual interest.
To explore any of these kinds of opportunities for Guest status at ISCR, please contact the
Deputy Director for ISCR.
