The Argonne Named Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is a great opportunity for a recent or imminent PhD looking to work at the cutting edge of computing. You also get a fancy title, like "Arthur Holly Compton Fellow" or similar. (There are a few to choose from.)
The application deadline is November 5. If you are interested, drop me a line. More details below:
The Director's Office initiated these special postdoctoral fellowships at Argonne, to be awarded internationally on an annual basis to outstanding doctoral scientists and engineers who are at early points in promising careers.š The fellowships are named after scientific and technical luminaries who have been associated with Argonne and its predecessors, and the University of Chicago, since the 1940's.
Candidates for these fellowships must display superb ability in scientific or engineering research, and must show definite promise of becoming outstanding leaders in the research they pursue.š Fellowships are awarded for a two-year term, with a possible renewal for a third year, and carry a stipend of $76,000 per annum with an additional allocation of up to $20,000 per annum for research support and travel.
