*** The account for , Argonne National Laboratory has expired. ***

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 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 travel allowance. For additional details, including past recipients, see .

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, uncertainty quantification, stochastic systems, statistics, and unstructured mesh computations; software tools for parallel computing; and numerical methods for computational science problems and the analysis of big data. For further information, see .

The application must include a curriculum vitae (including publications, significant presentations, and links to preprints and software); a statement of research interests; and contact information for three non-Argonne scientists who will be submitting letters of recommendation. Letters may be submitted directly to

In order to receive full consideration, applications and letters should be submitted by December 8, 2017. The selection process is expected to conclude in late winter/early spring of 2018.
