J. H. Wilkinson

Application Dates: August 31, 2013 - January 10, 2014.

The J. H. Wilkinson Fellowship in Scientific Computing was created in memory of 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 fellowship is intended to encourage scientists actively engaged in state-of-the-art research in scientific computing.

The appointment is 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. 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.

Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. prior to the beginning of the appointment. Benefits include a highly competitive salary, moving expenses, and a generous professional travel allowance. The appointment is for one year and may be renewed for another year.

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.

Candidates should start the application process here. The application must include a curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and three letters of recommendation. Applications will be accepted starting August 31, 2013. Applications received before December 6, 2013 are assured maximum consideration. The closing date for applications is January 10, 2014. Application material will be reviewed by a selection committee and a candidate will be announced in March 2014.
