Faculty who are members of the Academic Senate are invited to prepare a proposal to be a visiting scholar at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The LANL Visiting Scholar Program funds UC faculty to do research at the laboratory and LANL staff to do research and related teaching at a UC campus. The intent of this program is to allow the host institution and the participant to benefit from closer professional interactions while fostering collaborative research between the campus and the laboratory. Those selected will have their salary and associated expenses covered while carrying out their research and related activities for a period of six months to one year. Proposals are due February 10, 1997. For more information, contact Carolyn Beckmann at (505) 665-9565 or via e-mail at cbeckmann@lanl.gov. The call for proposals is available on the World Wide Web at http://stb.lanl.gov/UC/UC.html.
