The Householder Fellowship is offered one time a year and posted on the ORNL Career's Website when selection begins. The Fellowship requirements are listed below.

  • The minimum required education is a Ph.D. in applied mathematics, statistics or computational science, but no more than four years beyond completion can be considered.
  • A proven academic record of high quality research with clear potential to perform cutting edge, innovative research in applied mathematics, statistics and/or computational science.
  • The successful candidate will have a strong background and expertise in more than one area of particular relevance to the Applied Math Group at ORNL.
  • Principal research areas include:
    • Multi-scale methods, including atomistic-to-continuum coupling;
    • Computational kinetic theory;
    • Computational fluid dynamics and turbulence;
    • High-dimensional approximation theory;
    • Large-scale iterative methods for linear and eigenvalue problems;
    • Numerical methods for stochastic (partial) differential equations;
    • Uncertainty quantification;
    • Probability theory
    • Statistical sampling and design of experiments;
    • Combinatorial optimization and graph theory;
    • Computational geometry and mesh generation;
    • Sparse methods for data analytics;
    • High-order continuous and discontinuous methods for PDEs;
    • Multi-resolution analysis;
    • Data assimilation and filtering;
    • Inverse problems (classical and Bayesian); and
    • Methods and algorithms for computationally intensive inference.
