Argonne National Laboratory has a long\-standing tradition of attracting top early career talent through the Named Fellowship Program\. These special fellowships are awarded internationally each year to outstanding doctoral scientists and engineers who are at early points in promising careers\. The fellowships are named after scientific and technical luminaries who have been associated with the laboratory, its predecessors and the University of Chicago since the 1940s, including the Maria Goeppert Mayer Fellowship named for the Argonne Nuclear Physicist and Noble Prize Winner and awarded annually\.

Argonne offers the opportunity for appointees to perform research in a scientifically and technologically rich environment; present and publish research; contribute to the overall research efforts of the Laboratory; advance knowledge in the areas of basic and applied research; and strengthen our national scientific and technical capabilities\. Your academic achievements and demonstrated research capabilities will undoubtedly contribute to the continuing scientific and technological success of the Laboratory\. It is our intention that your tenure at Argonne be as productive and rewarding as possible\.

To qualify for the Argonne National Laboratory Fellowships, you should display superb ability in scientific or engineering research and promise of becoming a global leader in the research you pursue\. Proposals from all STEM disciplines are accepted and should align with Argonne or DOE missions\. Proposals aligned with Quantum Information Sciences and Artificial Intelligence applied to Science are especially encouraged\. Candidates should consult with their sponsors to determine the strategic alignment of proposals\.

You will work closely with an Argonne sponsor to pursue your research interests and are hired as an Argonne Scholar with full benefits, a highly competitive salary and a stipend for research support\. Fellows may renew their appointments on an annual basis for up to 3 years, with the possibility of retention\. The first two years of the fellowship are funded 100% by Argonne’s Laboratory Directed Research Development \(LDRD\) Program\. The third year is funded 50% by LDRD and 50% by other programs identified by the fellow and sponsor\. This model allows fellows to advance independent research as outlined in their fellowship proposal, while making significant contributions to other Laboratory initiatives\.

We are currently accepting applicants for the Maria Goeppert Mayer Scholarship\. Deadline is October 15, 2018\.
