Mathematica Careers

Summer Fellowships: Pursuing Self-Directed, Issues-Oriented Research

About the Program

The Summer Fellowship Program welcomes doctoral students to spend 12 weeks with Mathematica.  Fellows will work on their own independent research project (typically their dissertation), which will intersect with one or more of Mathematica’s focus areas.

Fellows will be mentored by senior staff, learn about Mathematica and its work, and have the opportunity to shadow Mathematica research projects and proposals. At the conclusion of the fellowship, fellows will present a seminar on their research project. Each fellow will receive a stipend of $10,000, plus $500 in project-related expenses. View some of the topics covered by prior summer fellows.


Mathematica takes pride in its commitment to diversity and inclusion. Minority students, students with disabilities, military veterans, and members of other underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.


Applications should be submitted to the Human Resources department by February 29, 2024.

Our hiring teams begin reviewing Summer Fellowship applications after the deadline passes, in order to facilitate an equitable and consistent process among all applications. Applicants can expect to hear back about the status of their applications between mid-March and early April, depending on the volume of applications received.
