Postdoc Position, Wilkinson Fellowship, Argonne National Laboratory

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 opportunities/j-h-wilkinson-fellowship
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.
