Argonne’s Distinguished Fellowship Program seeks to attract and retain top scientific and engineering talent to the lab. Each year, applications are solicited in the spring and fall for the Director’s Fellowship and the Named Fellowship. These are highly competitive programs, with submissions from across the lab and research proposals encompassing a diverse array of scientific disciplines.
We are pleased to announce the recipients for the 2014 Named and Director’s Fellowships. The recipients will commence their fellowships this fall and winter. We look forward to working with these fine researchers as they help advance the laboratory’s missions and grow new programs.
