The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley invites applications for Research Fellowships for academic year 2016-17.
Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are an opportunity for outstanding junior scientists (at most 6 years from PhD by Fall 2016) to spend one or both semesters at the Institute in connection with one or more of its programs. The programs for 2016-17 are as follows:
* Algorithms and Uncertainty (Fall 2016)
* Logical Structures in Computation (Fall 2016)
* Foundations of Machine Learning (Spring 2017)
* Pseudorandomness (Spring 2017)
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, 2015.
