SNK3R accepted again...but this time it's better! (in Off-topic)


SNK3R March 22 2006 12:42 AM EST

I'm eccentrically pleased to announce that I have been selected to participate in the CCI (Community College Institute of Science and Technology) internship program at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

A little bit about the internship:

Students that are accepted work with scientists or engineers on projects related to the laboratories' research programs. This is a highly competitive program that will allow students to do research with some of the best scientists in the world. You can read more about it by clicking on the above link. I'll also update you guys as to any additional information I receive since I was only allowed to accept the offer and not find out any details regarding when I'll be leaving, etc.

This has been the best week of my life!

That sounds pretty awesome. Best of luck to you in your studies / travels. Don't forget to come back and say hi to all of us once in a while if you get the time ;)

SNK3R March 22 2006 12:48 AM EST

Thanks! For the record, I don't plan on leaving, so I'm definitely sticking around. ;)

Congrats! But you don't have to dance. Vestax can do that for us.

Maelstrom March 22 2006 10:21 AM EST

Oh! Now I understand. You're a trumpet player...

Q: What's the difference between trumpet players and government bonds?
A: Government bonds eventually mature and earn money.

:p

Thanks, everyone! For those interested in what I'll be doing here's an update:

I will be working at the Laboratory's 88-Inch Cyclotron, a DOE national facility in nuclear science. I will work with 88-Inch Cyclotron Operations on a joint project between LBNL (Berkeley National Lab) and Lawrence Livermore National Lab which involves both nuclear and accelerator physics, some engineering, and some chemistry. The project involves using the cyclotron to make radioactive atoms which live for a period of several hours to a few days and then accelerating those atoms to use in nuclear and astrophysics experiments. Abstracts by students who worked there last year can be found here.
