Student Opportunities

The MCS Division, in conjunction with Argonne's Educational Programs, conducts programs for undergraduate and graduate students majoring in computer science or a related discipline. These programs are sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy for student research opportunities at colleges, universities, and national laboratories. We offer the following:

  • Givens Associates: The Givens Associate positions are intended to encourage graduate students who are beginning careers in numerical analysis or computational mathematics. Associates work actively scientists designing, analyzing, and implementing numerical and visualization methods.
  • W.J. Cody Associates: The W. J. Cody Associates program provides an opportunity for graduate students to work at the forefront of computing. Associates assist researchers in designing, analyzing, and implementing software solutions for scientific computing at extreme scale.
  • Student Internships: Students may obtain research experience working  with staff at Argonne.

Postdoctoral Opportunities

Faculty Opportunities

The MCS Division, in conjunction with Argonne's Educational Programs, conducts the Faculty Participant Program for faculty members of accredited U. S. colleges and universities. Researchers who explore the frontiers of knowledge carry their excitement into the classroom to motivate and inspire students. And research opportunities and experiences improve the quality of undergraduate education faculty members provide.
