Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships

The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley is currently accepting applications for research fellowships for the 2013-14 academic year, during which time the institute will have programs on  “Real Analysis in Computer Science,” “Theoretical Foundations of Big Data Analysis,”  “Evolutionary Biology and the Theory of Computing,” and “Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity.”

These positions are for postdocs and junior researchers, including those who will have a position elsewhere and want to spend a semester at the institute to participate in one of the programs.  Note that the deadline is very soon – January 15.    

[On the topic of postdocs, the CATCS encourages researchers in the community to explore the possibility of hiring postdocs using grants or other sources of funding this year.  With the ending of the CI Fellows program and the previous Simons Foundation postdoctoral program, hosts who can provide funding may have a greater opportunity to recruit excellent candidates.]
