We are pleased to announce a nationwide search for 8-10 outstanding graduate student candidates to participate in the Seaborg Institute Summer Research Fellowships Program at Los Alamos National Laboratory, sponsored by the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security and the G. T. Seaborg Institute for Transactinium Science.

Research Fellowships Areas

  • Nuclear and Radiochemistry - nuclear forensics, homeland security, nuclear medicine, isotope production, nuclear physics, and related areas.
  • Actinide Science - f-element chemistry and physics, spectroscopy, surface science, materials science, metallurgy, and related areas.

Fellowships generally run 8-10 weeks, and give students an opportunity to join Los Alamos scientists in independent research projects that can contribute to their thesis or advanced degree. While at Los Alamos, Research Fellows are encouraged to attend our weekly lecture series on a wide variety of current research topics presented by Los Alamos experts. Students are expected to present their research results at a poster session at the end of the summer experience.
