Argonne National Laboratory has a long-standing tradition of attracting top early career talent through the Named Fellowship Program. These special fellowships are awarded internationally on an annual basis to outstanding doctoral scientists and engineers who are at early points in promising careers. The fellowships are named after scientific and technical luminaries who have been associated with the laboratory, its predecessors and the University of Chicago since the 1940s, including:
- Alexei Abrikosov, theoretical physicist
- George W. Beadle, biologist
- Arthur Holly Compton, high energy particle physicist
- Ugo Fano, atomic physicist
- James Wallace Givens, mathematician and computer scientist
- Joseph Katz, nuclear organic inorganic chemist
- Maria Goeppert Mayer, nuclear physicist
- Aneesur Rahman, computational physicist
- David Schramm, astrophysics
- Glenn Seaborg, chemist
- Harold Urey, nuclear chemist
- Eugene Wigner, theoretical physicist
- Walter H. Zinn, nuclear reactor physicist
The name of the fellowship is assigned based on the recipient’s scientific or engineering discipline.
Applications for the 2014 Named Fellowships will be accepted through October 15, 2013.
Fellowships are awarded for a two-year term, with possible renewal for a third year. The 2014 Fellowship carries a stipend of $80,000 per annum with an additional allocation of up to $20,000 per year for research support and travel. The Fellows, who will be competitively selected by a special fellowship committee, are given the opportunity to work with Argonne scientists and engineers in a research area of common interest.
