The Santa Fe Institute is accepting applications for post-docs. For sheer concentrated intellectual stimulation — not to mention views like this from your office window — there is probably no better position for an independent-minded young scientist with interdisciplinary interests. The deadline is 15 November 2007.
Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities at the Santa Fe Institute
The Santa Fe Institute (SFI) is selectively seeking applications for Postdoctoral Fellows for appointments beginning Fall 2008.
Fellows are appointed for up to three years during which they pursue research questions of their own design and are encouraged to transcend disciplinary lines. SFI's unique structure and resources enable Fellows to collaborate with members of the SFI faculty, other Fellows, and researchers from around the world.
As the leader in multidisciplinary research, SFI has no formal programs or departments and we accept applications from any field. Research topics span the full range of natural and social sciences and often make connections with the humanities. Most research at SFI is theoretical and/or computational in nature, although some research includes an empirical component in collaboration with other institutions.
The compensation package includes a competitive salary and excellent health and retirement benefits. As full participants in the SFI community, Fellows are encouraged to invite speakers, organize workshops and working groups and engage in research outside their field. Funds are available to support this full range of research activities. Applications are welcome from candidates in any country. Successful foreign applicants must acquire an acceptable visa (usually a J-1) as a condition of employment. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
For complete information and application instructions, please follow the link to http://www.santafe.edu/postdocapp08.
The online application process opens October 15, 2007. Application deadline is November 15, 2007.
