from Alistair Sinclair: Research Fellowships at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing

The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley invites applications for Research Fellowships for academic year 2017-18.

Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are an opportunity for outstanding junior scientists (at most 6 years from PhD by Fall 2017) to spend one or both semesters at the Institute in connection with one or more of its programs. The programs for 2017-18 are as follows:

* Bridging Continuous and Discrete Optimization (Fall 2017)
* Real-Time Decision Making (Spring 2018)
* The Brain and Computation (Spring 2018)

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 http://simons.berkeley.edu/fellows2017. Information about the Institute and the above programs can be found at http://simons.berkeley.edu.

Deadline for applications: 15 December, 2016.
