ICES believes postdoctoral researchers are vital to the Institute's work. As a result, an endowment was donated as funding for the Peter O’Donnell, Jr. Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Engineering and Sciences. The generous fund allows ICES to attract outstanding computational scientists who have recently completed doctoral studies in areas relevant to research conducted at the Institute. Fellowship stipends are $60,000 per year. In addition, fellows receive UT employee benefits and relocation expenses up to $1,000. Under the terms of the endowment, preference is given to applicants who are U.S. citizens, but qualified foreign students will also be considered.

Candidates must display a significant ability to contribute to interdisciplinary research efforts in the areas of computational engineering, scientific and mathematical modeling, computational and applied mathematics, and computational visualization. In general, fellowship recipients collaborate in research under the supervision of one or more ICES core faculty members for one year. The fellowship may be extended for an additional year depending on performance and availability of funds.

Without prior approval from the ICES Director, applicants must not hold concurrently another fellowship or similar award from the University of Texas System or any other entity.
