The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley invites applications for Research Fellowships for academic year 2015-16.
Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are an opportunity for outstanding junior scientists (at most 6 years from PhD by Fall 2015) to spend one or both semesters at the Institute in connection with one or more of its programs. The programs for 2015-16 are as follows:
* Fine-Grained Complexity and Algorithm Design (Fall 2015)
* Economics and Computation (Fall 2015)
* Counting Complexity and Phase Transitions (Spring 2016)
* Algorithmic Challenges in Genomics (Spring 2016)
Applicants who already hold junior faculty or postdoctoral positions are welcome to apply. In particular, applicants who hold, or expect to hold, postdoctoral appointments at other institutions are encouraged to apply to spend one semester as a Simons-Berkeley Fellow subject to the approval of the postdoctoral institution.
Deadline for applications: 15 December, 2014.
