DEIXIS: Computational Science at the National Laboratories is the frequently updated online companion to the eponymous annual publication of the Computational Science Graduate Fellowship. The Krell Institute manages the program for the U.S. Department of Energy.

DOE and the Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

The Department of Energy mission is to advance the national, economic, and energy security of the United States; to promote scientific and technological innovation in support of that mission; and to ensure the environmental cleanup of the national nuclear weapons complex. Its Computational Science Graduate Fellowship program provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing a Ph.D. in scientific or engineering disciplines with an emphasis in high-performance computing. 

The Krell Institute

Since it inception in 1997, the Krell Institute has provided superior technical resources, knowledge and experience in managing technology-based education and information programs, including two of the most successful fellowships offered by a U.S. science agency. Krell is named after the advanced civilization that once inhabited the planet Altair IV in the classic 1956 science fiction movie “Forbidden Planet.”
