[DMANET] 2016-2017 IBM Herman Goldstine Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences

2016-2017 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 2016-2017 Herman Goldstine Memorial
Postdoctoral Fellowship 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. Areas of active research in the department include:
algorithms (approximation, randomized, and on-line); complex systems; data
mining (machine learning, pattern recognition, computational statistics);
dynamical systems; high-performance computing (scientific computing,
parallel computing, big-data); inverse problems; numerical analysis;
optimization (discrete, continuous, global and stochastic); operations
research; probability theory (stochastic models, risk management, queues &
queuing networks, simulation); and statistics (time-series, multivariate
analysis, spatiotemporal analysis, design of experiments & reliability).

Candidates must have received a Ph.D. after September 2011, or should
expect to receive one before the fellowship commences in the second half
of 2016 (usually in September). Up to two fellowships will be awarded
with a stipend between $105,000 and $130,000 (depending on experience).

Applications must be received between November 9, 2015 and January 12,
