Dartmouth College Neukom Fellows: Call for Applications

The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is pleased to announce the Neukom Postdoctoral Fellows competition for positions starting September 1, 2019.

Neukom Fellows are interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s, DMAs, or MFAs whose research interests or practice cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and has some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual exploration or an explicit part of the work that is pursued. The successful candidate should have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, but still show evidence of independence and initiative. The Fellowships are two year appointments, other than standard research trips Neukom Fellows are expected to be in residence. Early departure means early cut-off of support. 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. Beyond that there are no additional duties. Neukom Fellow stipends are $60,000 for 2019-2020. Additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and research materials.

- Research interests strongly intersecting theme of computation.
- Demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research.
- Evidence of ability to think outside traditional paradigms.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek out connections with and contact potential Dartmouth mentors as they draft their applications.
