Butler Fellowship

Open to outstanding postdoctoral candidates, this computational science fellowship offers an opportunity to work at the forefront of HPC. The fellow will have the opportunity to collaborate with Argonne scientists to use Mira, the ALCF's 10-petaflops supercomputer, to push scientific boundaries in their field of expertise.

The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) invites postdoctoral candidates, both male and female, to apply for the Margaret Butler Fellowship in Computational Science, a one-year appointment that may be renewed for a second year.

Margaret K. Butler was a pioneering scientist who spent her career at the leading edge of computer science and nuclear energy. She programmed the first digital computers at Argonne National Laboratory in the early 1950s, helped design subsequent ones, and contributed to simulations of nuclear power reactors. Butler was the first female Fellow at the American Nuclear Society and director of the National Energy Software Center. Her analytical talents, vision, and drive led to a lifetime of scientific contributions.

Questions concerning the application process should be directed to ALCF’s Human Resources Representative, Denise Nelson.
