Postdoctoral Fellowships in Complex Systems

Santa Fe Institute

The Santa Fe Institute anticipates possible openings for postdoctoral fellowships beginning in September 2003.

The Institute's interdisciplinary research program is devoted to the study of complex systems in a wide variety of fields, including biology (e.g. genomics, evolutionary biology, ecology, immunology), computer science (adaptive computation, novel forms of computation, simulation), physics (nonlinear systems, statistical physics, biophysics), mathematics, statistics, cognitive science, and the social sciences, including anthropology, economics, and political science. Applications are also welcome from disciplines other than those listed here.

Postdoctoral Fellows work either on existing research projects or on projects of their own choosing. Research at the Institute focuses primarily on mathematical and computational approaches, although applicants whose research will include an experimental or data-collection component in collaboration with off-site colleagues are also encouraged to apply.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. (or expect to receive one before September 2003) in the mathematical, computational, physical, biological, or social sciences, with an academic record of scientific excellence, a demonstrated ability for independent research, and a strong interest in interdisciplinary approaches and collaboration.
