Research Fellowship in Theory of Computing, Berkeley CA (U.S.A.) & Saarbruecken, GERMANY
Joint Research Fellowships of the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, Berkeley and Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Germany Max Planck Institute offers joint research fellowships with the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, Berkeley, CA, USA. These fellowships are a major component of a collaboration between the two institutes directed at Theory of Computing and its applications in various fields. The fellowship holder will spend one semester (not necessarily the first) at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing and the remainder of the fellowship at the Max Planck Institute. For the residence at the Simons Institute there is a preference for the research topic to be related to a respective half-year research program run at the Simons Institute. The research programs for Fall 2013 are "Real Analysis in Computer Science" and "Theoretical Foundations of Big Data Analysis," and the topics for Spring 2014 are "Algorithms and Models in Evolutionary Biology" and "Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity." Descriptions of these programs and other information about the Simons Institute can be found at http://simons.berkeley.edu. Research Fellowships are intended for exceptional young scientists at most six years after the award of their PhD. Candidates should submit their application (curriculum vitae, photograph, list of publications, short research plan, argued interest in one or more of the Simons research programs, copies of degree certificates, copies of the five most important publications, list of three references) as a single PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org . The Max Planck Institute particularly encourages applications from outstanding women and minority candidates. The deadline for receipt of the application is January 15, 2013.
