Wilkinson Fellowship at Argonne National Laboratory

Applications received before December 15, 2013, are assured maximum consideration. The closing date for applications is January 17, 2014
The Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) Division of Argonne National Laboratory invites outstanding candidates to apply for the J. H. Wilkinson Fellowship in Scientific Computing. The appointment is for one year and may be renewed for another year. 

This fellowship was created in memory of Dr. James Hardy Wilkinson, F.R.S., who had a close association with the Mathematics and Computer Science Division as a consultant and guiding spirit for the EISPACK and LINPACK projects. The Wilkinson Fellowship is intended to encourage scientists actively engaged in state-of-the-art research in scientific computing. Candidates must have received a recent Ph.D. prior to the beginning of the appointment. The benefits of the appointment include a highly competitive salary, moving expenses, and a generous professional travel allowance. For additional details, including past recipients, see

The appointment will be in the MCS Division, which has strong programs in scientific computing, software tools, and computational mathematics. Of special interest are algorithms and software for linear algebra, optimization, differential equations, computational differentiation, stochastic systems, and unstructured mesh computations; software tools for parallel computing; and numerical methods for computational science problems. For further information, see . 

Internationally recognized for innovative research in high-performance computing, the MCS Division supports an excellent computational environment that includes large Linux clusters, a distributed systems laboratory, and a virtual environments laboratory. Researchers also have access to a Blue Gene/P supercomputer. For more information, see . 

Argonne is located in the southwestern Chicago suburbs, offering the advantages of affordable housing, good schools, and easy access to the cultural attractions of the city. 

Interested candidates should consult the website details on how to apply. The application must include a curriculum vitae; statement of research interests; a list of publications, abstracts, and significant presentations; and three letters of recommendation. Applications will be accepted starting August 31, 2013. Applications received before December 15, 2013, are assured maximum consideration. The closing date for applications is January 17, 2014. Application material will be reviewed by a selection committee and a candidate announced in March 2014.
