SEPHAS ScientistsSEPHAS provides a unique opportunity in education for everyone to explore our facility. We offer specialized tours to K-12 educational system as well as the general public. We also offer exceptional opportunities for Graduate and Post-Doctoral students looking for real world experience.

Educational Outreach

The Desert Research Institute, as a member of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE), is committed to Nevada's K-12 education system and teachers so they can bring real world knowledge back into their classrooms.

Tours are available for community, school, business, and other groups by appointment.

Educational Opportunities

SEPHAS provides an excellent opportunity to maximize the benefits from educational programs by providing graduate student and post doctoral fellowships. Graduate fellowships are available to UNR, UNLV, and DRI students to conduct research with SEPHAS faculty. Post doctoral fellowships involve large-scale independent projects under the directorate of faculty. Post doctoral fellows are encouraged to further develop research proposals that can be submitted to external funding agencies.  Potential applicants have to apply for the admission through the graduate programs in the University of Nevada Las Vegas or University of Nevada Reno.
