The Jill Hruby Fellowship in National Security Science and Engineering is one of Sandia National Laboratories’ most prestigious postdoctoral fellowships. This fellowship is for women in engineering and science fields who are interested in technical leadership careers in national security.
Jill Hruby is the first woman to have been appointed director of a large, multidisciplinary national security laboratory and has been a driving force for other women at Sandia and across the country to follow careers in technical leadership.
Jill Hruby Fellows pursue independent research that supports Sandia’s purpose: developing advanced technologies to ensure global peace. Fellows receive technical mentorship and participate in a unique, prestigious leadership development program.
To be considered for this fellowship, applicants must display excellence in scientific and/or engineering research and show clear promise of becoming an outstanding leader. Fellows may work at either of Sandia’s principal locations in New Mexico and California. All qualified applicants will be considered for this fellowship.
