Faculty Research Participation

About the Program

Faculty participants in this program typically spend a maximum of six months collaborating with an Argonne staff scientist or engineer on an existing Argonne project that is of interest to the faculty member. The applicant’s objectives for the Argonne appointment should be clearly specified, and the applicant’s department head or dean must endorse these objectives.


Faculty applicants must be full-time faculty members of an accredited college or university.

Financial Assistance

Financial support is available. Participants are provided with a stipend typically based upon their academic-year salary. A one-time, round-trip travel reimbursement will usually be paid to faculty participants whose permanent addresses are more than fifty miles away from Argonne.
