Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computer Science, various IBM Labs (WORLDWIDE),


IBM Research announces the 2013 Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral 
Fellowship in Computer Science and Computer Engineering in memory of Dr. 
Josef Raviv.

IBM will offer one postdoctoral fellowship to a recent Ph.D. who shows 
exceptional promise for a research career in computer science or computer 
engineering. The fellowship will be for one year, with an opportunity for 
IBM to renew for an additional year conditional on funding availability. 
The stipend will be highly competitive, and will include reasonable moving 
and travel expenses. A candidate must have received a Ph.D. degree between 
January 2009 and August 2013.

Depending on proposed collaborations, the Fellow will spend most of 
his/her time at one of IBM?s worldwide research laboratories. The Fellow 
will be free to follow his/her own research interests, but is expected to 
work closely with other IBM researchers. Applicants are encouraged to 
identify IBM Research groups working in their area of interest.

Application deadline:  January 6, 2013

Please submit the following documents via email to ravivdoc@us.ibm.com

 Resume (include contact e-mail, postal address, phone number).

 Thesis summary (one-page maximum).

 Research proposal (no more than two pages).

 Indicate the proposed lab. If you know of a specific group(s) which you 
would like to join and/or researcher(s) you would like to work with, 
indicate that as well. If there are multiple groups, list at most three.

 Reprint of applicant's most significant research publications.

 Three (3) reference letters, including one from the Ph.D. thesis 
advisor. Letters should be sent directly by recommenders to 
ravivdoc@us.ibm.com

Applicants will be notified by March 15, 2013. The fellowship begins in 
early September, unless another date is agreed upon.
