Training Opportunities

NIH Protein Biotechnology Training Program 

This program offers interdisciplinary training to enhance the graduate experience and produce versatile scientists and engineers to address the future needs of biotechnology in academic, industrial, or government service. The program provides state-of-the-art training in basic science relevant to biotechnology and an education in the applied aspects of biotechnology, with particular emphasis on protein science and engineering.

PNNL-WSU Distinguished Graduate Research Program

This program is intended to increase the quality and quantity of STEM Ph.D. students across the WSU system, while providing an enhanced research experience by aligning WSU faculty and students with PNNL scientists and the unique capabilities and research programs at PNNL. The program helps recruit outstanding students to WSU graduate programs in existing and emerging areas of collaboration with PNNL: nuclear science and engineering; electric power grid; bioproducts; catalysis; environmental, water and soil science and engineering; as well as other emerging areas of collaboration.

Professional Development Initiative (PDI)

This program is organized by the Graduate School and Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) and has received support through many partnerships with colleges across campus. This initiative provides a range of programs, training opportunities and resources for graduate and professional students to help prepare them for academic and career success. The goal of the PDI is to ensure that all graduate and professional students gain the skills, knowledge, and mindsets necessary to succeed professionally and academically.
