The deadline for applications is Aug. 6, 2018. The application form and additional information can be found on Inside Argonne.
The Launchpad Program enables selected early- to mid-career staff in Argonne’s programmatic divisions to devote a portion (up to 50 percent) of their time to working closely with TCP and other support organizations at Argonne to develop a sponsored research program. The remainder of their time is spent conducting their primary research. The portion of staff effort dedicated to program development is paid for by TCP.
Launchpad is designed to be an additional driver of new programs that grow Argonne’s research portfolio and sponsorship thereof. Specifically, the program is aimed at passionate, intrinsically motivated candidates who have a vision for a research program that within the next three to five years can become a multi-million-dollar program. Launchpad also serves as a great career development opportunity for future leaders of Argonne.
The key dates for Cohort 3 are:
Aug. 6, 2018: Applications due (download application form)
Aug. 31, 2018: Participants selected
Oct. 1, 2018: Cohort 3 starts (one-year duration)
