Mathematics and Computer Science Division

Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Laboratory is seeking outstanding candidates in the
general area of computational mathematics to fill the newly created J.H.
Wilkinson Fellowship in Computational Mathematics.

This fellowship was created in memory of Dr. James Hardy Wilkinson,
F.R.S., who for many years had a close association with the Mathematics and
Computer Science Division at Argonne, where he acted as a consultant and
guiding spirit for such efforts as the EISPACK and LINPACK projects.

The J.H. Wilkinson Fellowship is intended to encourage young scien-
tists who are actively engaged in state-of-the-art research in computa-
tional mathematics-including, but not limited to, the development and
implementation of numerical algorithms for linear algebra. The candidate
must have earned (or be about to earn) a Ph.D. degree or the equivalent
during the past five years and should have a strong background in numerical
computation. The candidate should also be interested in expanding into the
area of advanced computing research. Argonne's Mathematics and Computer
Science Division has strong programs in computational mathematics and
advanced computing, as well as in software engineering and applied

This one-year appointment includes salary (starting at $45,000; higher
with experience), moving expenses, and a generous professional travel
allotment. Applications from qualified candidates, as well as nominations
for the position of Wilkinson Fellow, should be addressed to Jack J.
Dongarra, Mathematics and Computer Science Division, Argonne National
Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois 60439-4844. Applications should include a
resume and a statement of research goals, and the names of three refer-
ences. The closing date for applications is June 1, 1987. The applica-
tions will be reviewed during June 1987 by an international selection com-
mittee. The position will commence during 1988.

Further inquiries can be made by calling 312-972-7163 or by sending
electronic-mail to

Argonne is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
