After spending a year at the ALS, our doctoral fellows in residence are preparing to return to their home institutions. Before leaving, they gave lightning talks on the work they did at the beamlines and what else they did in the Bay Area.
At the beginning of the event, Molecular Foundry Staff Scientist Jim Ciston talked to the doctoral fellows about his career path, which recently led to a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).
The doctoral fellows then recapped their experiences this year, discussing scientific results and giving some fun updates, too. The ALS looks forward to meeting the new doctoral fellows who will be joining us next month!
