2008-2009 IBM Herman Goldstine Memorial
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences
The Mathematical Sciences Department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center invites applications for its 2008-2009 Herman Goldstine Memorial Postdoctoral
Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences 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
The Mathematical Sciences Department provides an atmosphere in which basic research is combined with work on technical problems arising in industry. Currently,
about 110 permanent members, academic visitors, and post-doctoral fellows are pursuing research in pure and applied mathematics and in theoretical and exploratory
computer science. Areas of research include:
Close interaction with permanent department members is expected, but fellows are
free to pursue their own research interests.
- algorithms (approximation, randomized, and on-line);
- data mining (machine learning, pattern recognition, and computational statistics);
- dynamical systems and differential equations;
- high-performance computing (including scientific computing and parallel computing);
- numerical analysis;
- optimization (discrete, continuous, and stochastic);
- probability theory (stochastic models,
- risk management, queues and queueing networks);
- statistics (time-series, multivariate analysis, design, and reliability);
- and supply-chain and operations management (pricing, optimization
and performance modeling).
One fellowship will be awarded. Candidates must have received a Ph.D. degree after
September 2003 or should expect to receive one before the fellowship commences
in the second half of 2008. The fellowship has a period of one year, and may be
extended another year by mutual agreement. The stipend is expected to be between
$95,000 and $115,000, depending on the area and length of experience. An additional
allowance for moving expenses will be provided.
Applications will be accepted between October 15, 2007 and January 5, 2008.
