Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - 2019-2020 Goldstine Fellowship

The Mathematical Sciences department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center invites applications for its 2019–2020 Herman Goldstine Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship for research in mathematical and computer sciences. The fellowship provides scientists of outstanding ability an opportunity to advance their scholarship as resident department members at the Research Center. The Research Center is located in Westchester County, less than an hour north of New York City.

The department provides an atmosphere in which basic research is combined with work on practical applications. Their permanent members, academic visitors, and post-doctoral fellows pursue research in pure and applied mathematics and in theoretical and exploratory computer science.

Areas of research include: algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning, numerical analysis and scientific computing, dynamical systems, inverse problems, optimization, operations research, applied probability, and statistics. Close interaction with permanent department members is expected and encouraged, but fellows are free to pursue their own research interests.

Up to two fellowships will be awarded. Candidates must have received a PhD degree after September 2014 or should expect to receive one before the fellowship commences in the second half of 2019 (usually in September).

The fellowship has a period of one year, and may be extended for another year by mutual agreement. The stipend is expected to be between $130,000 and $150,000, depending on the length of experience. An additional allowance for moving expenses will be provided.
