[DMANET] Reminder: Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships

This is a re-posting of an earlier announcement. Please note that the
deadline for applications is 15 December.

The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley
invites applications for Research Fellowships for academic year 2014-15.

Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are an opportunity for
outstanding junior scientists (at most 6 years from PhD by Fall 2014)
to spend one or two semesters at the Institute in connection with one
or more of its programs. The programs for 2014-15 are as follows:

* Algorithmic Spectral Graph Theory (Fall 2014)
* Algorithms and Complexity in Algebraic Geometry (Fall 2014)
* Information Theory (Spring 2015)

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.

Further details and application instructions can be found at
. Information about the Institute and the above programs can be found

Deadline for applications: 15 December, 2013.
