Postdoctoral Fellowships in Complex Studies
at the Santa Fe Institute

The Santa Fe Institute expects to have openings for a number of
Postdoctoral Fellows beginning in September 2001.

The Institute's interdisciplinary research program is devoted to the
study of complex systems in a wide variety of fields, including
biology (e.g., genomics, evolutionary biology, ecology, immunology),
computer science (adaptive computation, novel forms of computation,
simulation), physics (nonlinear systems, statistical physics,
biophysics), mathematics, statistics, cognitive science, and the
social sciences including anthropology, economics, and political
science.  Applications are also welcome from disciplines other than
those listed here.

Postdoctoral Fellows work either on existing research projects or on
projects of their own choosing.  Research at the Institute focuses
primarily on mathematical and computational approaches, although
applicants whose research will include an experimental or
data-collection component in collaboration with offsite colleagues
are also encouraged to apply.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. (or expect to receive one before
September 2001) in the mathematical, computational, physical,
biological or social sciences, with an academic record of scientific
excellence, a demonstrated ability for independent research, and a
strong interest in interdisciplinary approaches and collaboration.


Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications,
and statement of research interests.  Arrange for three letters of
recommendation to be sent to the address below.  Non-U.S. applicants
are eligible to apply.  Successful foreign applicants will enter the
U.S. on either a J or, less likely, an H visa.  All application
materials must be received by January 12, 2001.  Send complete
application package, by postal mail, to the address below.  Include
your e-mail address and/or fax number.
