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 will provide approximately half-time support and a modest amount of M&S funds. The appointment will cover a two-year period. Support for these fellowships comes from the Laboratory Directed Research & Development (LDRD) Program, PADGS, and the Science Campaigns (SC) in PADWP.

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.

Funding will not extend past the postdoc’s LANL postdoctoral appointment and is subject to all LDRD augmentation rules.
