The Truman Fellowship is a three-year appointment that typically begins on October 1. The application deadline for fellows is December 5 of the year prior to the October start date. Applicants for the Truman Fellowship may be considered for other positions at Sandia.
Sandia National Laboratories announces the establishment of the President Harry S. Truman Fellowship in National Security Science and Engineering to attract the best nationally recognized new Ph.D. scientists and engineers.
The Fellowship provides the opportunity for recipients to pursue independent research of their own choosing that supports the national security mission of Sandia National Laboratories. The appointee is expected to foster creativity and to stimulate exploration of forefront science and technology and high-risk, potentially high-value R&D.
Truman Fellowship candidates are expected to have solved a major scientific or engineering problem in their thesis work or will have provided a new approach or insight to a major problem, as evidenced by a recognized impact in their field.
The salary for Truman Fellows is $110,800. The Labs also offer a competitive benefits package that includes health, vision, and dental insurance; savings and income plan (401K); and paid holidays and vacation.
Fellows may work at either of the Laboratories’ principal locations. Both Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Livermore, California, offer a complete range of cultural and recreational activities.
