two semesters at the Institute in academic year 2013-14, in connection
with one or more of its programs. The programs for 2013-14 are as

* Real Analysis in Computer Science (Fall 2013)
* Theoretical Foundations of Big Data Analysis (Fall 2013)
* Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity (Spring 2014)
* Evolutionary Biology and the Theory of Computing (Spring 2014)

Applicants who already hold junior faculty or postdoctoral positions
are welcome to apply. In particular, applicants who hold, or expect to
hold, postdoctoral appointments at other institutions are encouraged
to apply to spend one semester as a Simons-Berkeley Fellow subject to
the approval of the postdoctoral institution.
