G.T. Seaborg Postdoctoral Fellows Program

The G. T. Seaborg Institute Postdoctoral Fellows Program supports research in heavy-element science relevant to Laboratory mission intersects with nuclear energy, nuclear weapons, and global security areas by attracting and funding a future generation of postdoctoral scientists.

Nuclear Science Targets

Nuclear science targets for this project include materials, material properties, signatures, modeling, predictions, fabrication, detection, disposal, global security implications, forensics, and the specialized science surrounding actinides and especially plutonium, uranium, and their surrogates as fuels for energy and nuclear weapons.

Goal

The goal is to advance nuclear science in a comprehensive project that ties targeted research with Los Alamos mission imperatives.

Mechanism

The mechanism for this is support of research arising from a multi-year broad-based postdoctoral fellows project. The Seaborg Institute works to maintain a balance among the many research areas. The program provides approximately half-time support and a modest amount of M&S funds. The appointments cover a two-year period.

Candidates

Successful candidates must be approved for division funding by the LANL postdoctoral program and be performing research in materials, material properties, signatures, modeling, predictions, fabrication, detection, disposal, global security implications, forensics, and the specialized science surrounding actinides and especially plutonium, uranium, and their surrogates as fuels for energy and nuclear weapons.
