IBM Postdoctoral Fellowship


The Mathematical Sciences Department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center invites applications for its 1996-1997 Postdoctoral Fellowship for research in mathematical and computer sciences. This fellowship provides scientists of outstanding ability an opportunity to advance their scholarship as resident department members at the Research Center. The department provides an atmosphere in which basic research is combined with experience on technical problems arising in industry. The program of the Mathematical Sciences Department is organized for research in pure and applied mathematics, and in theoretical and exploratory computer science. On-going research in the department includes work on sequential and parallel algorithms, computational complexity, coding theory, cryptography, numerical analysis, differential equations, mathematical optimization, high-performance computation, logic design, computer algebra, statistics, dynamical systems, continuous complexity, computational linguistics, computer music, user interface technology, and knowledge-based systems. Close interaction with permanent department members is expected, but fellows will be free to pursue their own research interests.

Each candidate must have a doctorate and not more than five years of postdoctoral professional experience when the fellowship commences. The fellowship has a period of one year, and may be extended by another year on mutual agreement. The stipend will be generally in the range of $65,000 to $67,000 per year, depending on experience. In addition, there will be an allowance for moving expenses. The Research Center is located in Westchester County, approximately forty miles north of New York City.

To apply, please submit the following by January 12, 1996: resume, including thesis summary; reprints of publications based on thesis and other research; a research proposal; and visa status. Citizens of countries defined as restricted by the U.S. Department of Commerce are required to have a green card or an equivalent visa status. Applicants are responsible for requesting that three or more letters of reference, including one from the thesis advisor, arrive before January 12. Direct all material to:

Committee on Postdoctoral Fellowships
Department of Mathematical Sciences
IBM Research Division
T. J. Watson Research Center
P. O. Box 218
Yorktown Heights, NY 10598

One fellowship will be awarded. Each applicant will be notified individually as soon as the committee has reached a decision on the application, no later than March 12, 1996.
