WILKINSON FELLOWSHIP IN SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING
Mathematics and Computer Science Division
Argonne National Laboratory
The Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) Division of Argonne National Laboratory invites
outstanding candidates to apply for the J. H. Wilkinson Fellowship in Scientific Computing. The
appointment is for one year and may be renewed for another year.
This fellowship was created in memory of Dr. 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 Wilkinson Fellowship is intended to encourage
scientists actively engaged in state-of-the-art research in scientific computing. Candidates must
have received a recent Ph.D. prior to the beginning of the appointment. The benefits of the
appointment include a highly competitive salary, moving expenses, and a generous professional
The appointment will be 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. For further information, see
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. For more information, see www.mcs.anl.gov.
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.
