The Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory seeks well-prepared candidates in applied mathematics, numerical analysis, optimization, numerical software, and statistics for multiple positions at career levels from postdoctoral researchers to senior staff researchers.


Please note, this is an “Evergreen” job posting which is used to build a pool of candidates for anticipated critical positions within the division. We do not interview or hire from an evergreen posting; however, you may be invited by a Talent Acquisition Specialist to apply to a specific job posting in the near future.


The positions will address software/algorithm development and/or theory in areas of interest to the applied mathematics, numerical software, and statistics group. Candidates should have expertise in one or more of the following areas:


  • Nonlinear optimization, including mixed-integer, multiobjective, stochastic/robust, PDE-constrained, simulation-based, dynamics, derivative-free, and parallel/concurrent optimization
  • Machine learning, data analysis, applied statistics, and uncertainty quantification
  • Statistical inference and analysis, sampling, spectral estimation
  • Stochastic processes, stochastic differential equations
  • Data assimilation, inverse problems
  • High-order methods for PDEs/CFD including spectral element methods
  • Numerical linear algebra focusing on highly scalable preconditioners including matrix-free methods
  • Numerical methods for ordinary and partial differential equations including error estimators and adjoints
  • Automatic/algorithmic differentiation
  • Quantum information sciences, including quantum computing, networking, and simulation

Position Requirements

  • Applicants should have a master’s or doctorate degree in computer science, mathematics, operations research, statistics, or a related discipline.
  • Applicants should have documented expertise commensurate with their experience, in computational mathematics, computational science, or numerical libraries.
  • Programming experience in C, Fotran, Julia, Python or another programming language is desirable; experience with parallel computing is desirable.
  • The appointment level will be commensurate with experience.

More information on applied mathematics, numerical software, and statistics work at Argonne may be found at .

Argonne provides a collaborative, open-science environment where scientists from various disciplines are engaged in solving challenging fundamental and practical problems. We value and strive for diversity in backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. At Argonne, one also has access to extreme-scale computing and experimental facilities.
