Postdoc Opportunity

Neukom FellowsThe Neukom Institute for Computational Science is pleased to announce the inaugural Neukom Fellows competition. Neukom Fellows are designed as explicitly interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s whose research interests cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, but has some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual exploration or an explicit component of the work that is pursued. The successful candidate should be interested in and, in the best case, have a history of collaborative work across disciplines but still show good evidence of independence and initiative. The Fellowships are two-to-three-year appointments, with the third year extension considered upon request after a review early in the second year. Neukom Fellows will be mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth college, take up residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course each year on a subject of their interest. There is a possibility of additional teaching if that is desirable on the part of the candidate. Beyond that there are no additional duties. Neukom Fellows stipends are $60,000 for 2012-2013. Some additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and research materials.Requirements: 1. Ph.D. in any discipline (or expected Ph.D. by September 2012). 2. Research interests that strongly intersect the theme of computation. 3. A proven ability to work independently and collaboratively. 4. Demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research. 5. Evidence of the ability to think outside traditional paradigms.Application materials: 1. CV (including publications list). 2. Statement of research interests (max. 2 pages), including a short description of the research you would like to pursue and why. 3. Description of which departments (and even better, which Dartmouth faculty) you would be interested in working with and why the opportunity to engage with multiple departments would enhance your work. 4. Three referees who can write on your behalf to the aims of the Fellowship. 5. (Optional) A copy of one paper you have written in English, either published or unpublished.Applications must be submitted to: Position ID: NeukomInstitute-FELLOW #3015Completed applications received by December 1, 2011 will get first consideration.
