Argonne opens 2018 competition for Margaret Butler Fellowships
The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility invites postdoctoral candidates to apply for the Margaret Butler Fellowship in Computational Science. This Argonne-based fellowship program supports a postdoc who is working in a field of study that advances the use of high-performance computing (HPC) to solve specific, complex science and engineering problems.
Candidates must either have a recent PhD, or be awarded a PhD prior to the start of the appointment. Fellows are awarded two consecutive years of support, subject to annual review, for research in their field and closely related fields.
NAISE can help connect interested students with an Argonne sponsor; all applicants must have a sponsor that will work with them should their application be successful.
Maria Goeppert Mayer Post-doctoral fellowship
Argonne is accepting applications for the Maria Goeppert Mayer Post-doctoral fellowship with a deadline of 10/15/18 for a position to begin on or after 10/1/19. It is renewable for up to three years.
The lab has established this fellowship to bring new research ideas and capabilities to the lab. This year proposals aligned with Quantum Information Sciences and Artificial Intelligence applied to Science are especially encouraged. Manufacturing Science and Engineering and related fields are also of high priority to the lab. Each candidate must be sponsored by a member of Argonne’s staff.
We strongly encourage Northwestern graduate students to apply to this opportunity and Jennifer Dunn can help connect potential applicants with Argonne sponsors to discuss applications.
Water Center to Collaborate with National Taiwan University on the Water-Energy Nexus
The Water Center Director Aaron Packman anticipates working with Professor Pen-Chi Chiang and Associate Professor Yi-Pin Lin of National Taiwan University to carry out research in an area important to the mega cities of Taipei, Taiwan and Chicago – considering the water-energy nexus in the integration of energy-efficient water technology and green infrastructure practices through a Dragon Gate project funded by the Department of International Cooperation and Science Education, a part of Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology. This award stems from a long-standing collaboration in this area between Northwestern University, Argonne National Laboratory, and National Taiwan University (NTU). Northwestern anticipates hosting NTU researchers for this project in the coming months.
Undergraduate Research Blog
Every summer, NAISE supports undergraduate researchers to spend the summer working in a research group at Argonne. The students maintain a blog describing their work. We look forward to the 2018 cohort’s upcoming contributions to this blog!
