Maria Goeppert Mayer Fellowship, Argonne National Lab, Illinois

The Maria Goeppert Mayer Fellowship is awarded internationally to outstanding doctoral scientists and engineers who are at early points in promising careers. That it bears the name of Goeppert Mayer underscores the prestige of this fellowship.
Candidates for the fellowships must display superb ability in scientific or engineering research and must show definite promise of becoming outstanding leaders in the research they pursue. Fellows work closely with an Argonne sponsor to pursue their research interests. Fellows are hired as an Argonne Scholar with full benefits, a highly competitive salary and a stipend for research support. Fellows may renew their appointments on an annual basis for up to 3years, with the possibility of retention.

To qualify for the Argonne National Laboratory Fellowships, you should display superb ability in scientific or engineering research and promise of becoming a global leader in the research you pursue. Proposals from all STEM disciplines are accepted and should align with Argonne or DOE missions. Proposals aligned with Quantum Information Sciences, Artificial Intelligence applied to Science, and Microelectronics Science are especially encouraged. Candidates should consult with their sponsors to determine the strategic alignment of proposals.

The first two years of the fellowship are funded 100% by Argonne’s Laboratory Directed Research Development (LDRD) Program. The third year is funded 50% by LDRD and 50% by other programs identified by the fellow and sponsor. This model allows fellows to advance independent research as outlined in their fellowship proposal, while making significant contributions to other Laboratory initiatives.

All application materials must be submitted by 7:00 PM Central Standard Time (US) on October 1, 2019. Incomplete applications will not be considered for review.
