Summary:

Research Associates

  • Research Associates pursue research as part of ongoing LANL science and engineering programs. Sponsored postdoctoral candidate packages are reviewed by the Postdoctoral Committee throughout the year.

Fellows

  • Director's Fellows collaborate with LANL scientists and engineers on staff-initiated research. Selections are made based on academic and research accomplishments and the strength and potential impact of the proposed research. Sponsored candidate packages will be reviewed during each of the quarterly meetings.
  • Agnew National Security Fellows pursue cutting-edge experimental, theoretical, computational science, and engineering research aligned with the national security mission. For more information, see Identified Research Areas (pdf). Open to persons with the ability to obtain a DOE "Q" security clearance, which usually requires U.S. citizenship. Sponsored candidate packages will be reviewed during the May quarterly meeting.
  • Nicholas C. Metropolis Fellows pursue cutting-edge research in the areas of computational and computer science, physics, and engineering. Under the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Program, computer simulation capabilities are developed in support of the stockpile stewardship program together with broader national nuclear security needs. Selected candidates will have access to the most powerful supercomputers in the world. For more information, see Identified Research Areas (pdf). Sponsored candidate packages will be reviewed during the January quarterly meeting.

Distinguished Fellows

  • Distinguished Fellows must display extraordinary ability in scientific research and show clear promise of becoming outstanding leaders. These fellowships provide the opportunity to collaborate with LANL scientists and engineers on staff-initiated research. Appointments are for three years. Sponsored candidates' packages will be reviewed by the Postdoctoral Committee during the January quarterly meeting. To be considered for one of the Distinguished Fellow appointments, candidates must be nominated and sponsored by a member of the Lab's technical staff.
  • Marie Curie (MC) Fellow -┬áThis Fellowship, named after the distinguished nuclear scientist and only person honored with two Nobel Prizes in different scientific categories (Physics, 1903; Chemistry, 1911), recognizes, encourages, and rewards outstanding scientific and engineering contributions by women. Open to all nationalities and research areas aligned with the Laboratory's mission.
  • Richard P. Feynman (RPF) Fellow in Theory and Computing - This Fellowship, named after the famed theoretical physicist and winner of the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics, recognizes individuals whose research is in theory or computing and who have demonstrated outstanding ability in research. Candidates must have the ability to obtain a DOE "Q" security clearance, which usually requires U.S. citizenship.
  • J. Robert Oppenheimer (JRO) Fellow -┬áThis Fellowship, named after the Laboratory's first Director, recognizes individuals whose research aligns with the Laboratory's mission and who have demonstrated outstanding ability in research. Open to all nationalities and research areas aligned with the Laboratory's mission.
  • Frederick Reines (FR) Fellow in Experimental Sciences - This Fellowship, named after the former LANL researcher who won the 1995 Nobel Prize in Physics, recognizes individuals whose research is in experimental sciences and who have demonstrated outstanding ability in research. Candidates must have the ability to obtain a DOE "Q" security clearance, which usually requires U.S. citizenship.

Partnerships

  • Intelligence Community Research Fellow Program - In coordination with the intelligence community and DOE, this fellowship provides the opportunity to collaborate with LANL scientists and engineers on staff-initiated research in areas that have potential for future technological developments important to the intelligence community. Open to those who have the ability to obtain a DOE "Q" security clearance, which usually requires U.S. citizenship. For more information, see the Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program website.
