Company Profiles

Attendees: A mix of companies, both in terms of size and sector, are attending this fair. Fair is restricted to 300+ postdoctoral researchers at Argonne, who come from a variety of disciplines including but not limited to engineering, basic sciences, and high-performance computing. Postdocs at Argonne have worked on such high profile research as the lithium ion battery technology currently housed in the Chevy Volt.

Position type: For the sake of consistency between laboratory and industrial hiring, we would strongly encourage full-time, permanent positions.

When (Date): September 21st 2012. The PSA symposium will take place on September 20th – 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Career fair attendants are welcome to attend presentations. September 21st will be open for Career Fair and interviews.

Where: The Career Fair will be held in the TCS Conference Center, located on the first floor of Building 240.

What’s included?

  1. Table, chairs, poster board, standard power outlet(s).
  2. Booklet containing resumes of participating post-doctoral researchers will be made available to the registered companies before the fair.
  3. Lunch for two representatives.
  4. Tour of Argonne’s research facility, including the Advanced Photon Source and the Center for Nanoscale Materials.

In addition, do you have any special need we can address?

Fee: A nominal fee of $150 is requested. This fee is waived for not-for-profit organizations.

Common Questions:

We cannot attend the career-fair but want to attend the symposium. Can we do that?

If there are companies who are interested in learning more about Argonne postdoctoral research and connecting with our postdocs, but do not currently have any openings, they may want to consider sponsoring our Research symposium. For their donation, we can register two company representatives to spend the day at Argonne networking with both our postdocs and invited postdocs from our academic partner institutions, and provide the opportunity to chair symposium sessions.

We have openings but cannot attend the fair due to time-constraints?

Argonne will provide a represented booth with your openings. However, we will need information about engineering/hiring managers in charge of those openings.

Do you have a brochure about Argonne research I can review, or forward to our technical managers?

Yes, they are located at:

  1. Argonne Brochure
  2. Postdoc Brochure
