Description:

Call for Applications, Neukom Fellows at Dartmouth College

The Neukom Institute for Computational Science is pleased to announce
the inaugural Neukom Fellows competition. Neukom Fellows are
designed as explicitly interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s whose
research interests cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, but has
some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for
intellectual exploration or an explicit component of the work that is
pursued. The successful candidate should be interested in and, in the best
case have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, but still show
good evidence of independence and initiative. The Fellowships are two-
to three-year appointments, with the third year extension considered upon
request after a review early in the second year. Neukom Fellows will be
mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take up
residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course each
year on a subject of their interest. There is a possibility of additional
teaching if that is desirable on the part of the candidate. Beyond that there
are no additional duties. Neukom Fellow stipends are $60,000 for 2012-
2013. Some additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and
research materials.

Requirements:
1. Ph.D. in any discipline (or expected Ph.D. by September 2012).
2. Research interests that strongly intersect the theme of computation.
3. A proven ability to work independently and collaboratively.
4. A demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research.
5. Evidence of the ability to think outside traditional paradigms.

Application Materials:
Interested candidates must submit the following:
1. Curriculum vitae (including publications list).

2. Statement of research interests (max. 2 pages) including a short
description of the research you would like to pursue and why.

3. Description of which departments (and even better, which Dartmouth
faculty) you would be interested in working with and why the opportunity to
engage with multiple departments would enhance your work.
4. Three referees who can write on your behalf to the aims of the
Fellowship.
5. (Optional) A copy of one paper you have written in English, either
published or unpublished.

Applications must be submitted using the application URL below, position
ID: NeukomInstitute-FELLOWS #3015

Completed applications received by January 6, 2012 will get first
consideration. Materials received after that date stand the chance of not
being considered. Applications from women and minorities are
encouraged. Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity employer.
