The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is offering Neukom Postdoctoral Fellows competition for positions starting September 1, 2019.
The primary goal for the Neukom Institute is to enable Dartmouth students and faculty to integrate computational technology into their curriculum, scholarship and most critically into their thinking. As described above, nearly every discipline across the campus can benefit from computational technology – our goal is to integrate computational advances into these disciplines, to support the development of new technologies that will change the way we all think and work, and to try to imagine what an unimaginable future is probably.
Degree Level: Fellowships are available to pursue Postdoctoral programme.
Available Subject: 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.
Scholarship Award: The Fellowships are two year appointments and 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. Other than travel for research and conferences, fellows must be in residence. 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.
Nationality: Fellowships are available for international students.
Entrance Requirements: Applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Ph.D. in any discipline or DMA or MFA (or expected by September 2019).
2. Research interests that strongly intersect the theme of computation.
3. A demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research.
4. Evidence of the ability to think outside traditional paradigms
English Language Requirements: Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
Application procedure: Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to contact prospective mentors at Dartmouth College and must submit the following materials:
- Curriculum vitae (including publications list).
2. Statement of research interests (max. 2 pages) including a short description of the research you would like to pursue as a Neukom Fellow.
3. Description of which departments (and even better, which Dartmouth faculty) you would be interested in working with and why the opportunity to engage with multiple departments would enhance your work. Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek out connections with and contact potential Dartmouth mentors as they draft their applications.
4. Three referees whose letters of recommendation speak to the aims of the Fellowship.
5. (Optional) A copy of one paper you have written in English (or some comparable kind of creative work), either published or unpublished.
Deadline: November 15, 2018
