Argonne National Laboratory: Graduate Research Appointments
Laboratory-Graduate Research (Lab-Grad) appointments are available for qualified U.S. university graduate students who wish to carry out their thesis research at Argonne National Laboratory under co-sponsorship of an Argonne staff member and a faculty member. The university sets the academic standards and awards the degree. In practice, participation by the faculty member varies from full partnership in the research to general supervision of the student's thesis work. The Argonne staff sponsor undertakes to keep the faculty sponsor informed about the student's progress, and he/she attends the thesis defense.
Research may be conducted in the basic physical and life sciences, mathematics, computer science, and engineering as well as in a variety of applied areas relating to conservation, environment, fission and fusion energy, and other energy technologies.
