IBM Herman Goldstine Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences

Overview

The Business Analytics and Mathematical Sciences Department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center invites applications for its 2011-2012 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. The Research Center is located in Westchester County, less than an hour north of New York City.

The Business Analytics and Mathematical Sciences Department provides an atmosphere in which basic research is combined with work on technical problems arising in industry. Currently, about 110 permanent members, academic visitors, and post-doctoral fellows are pursuing research in pure and applied mathematics and in theoretical and exploratory computer science. Areas of research include: algorithms (approximation, randomized, and on-line); data mining (machine learning, pattern recognition, and computational statistics); dynamical systems and differential equations; high-performance computing (including scientific computing and parallel computing); numerical analysis; optimization (discrete, continuous, and stochastic, with risk measures); probability theory (stochastic models, risk management, queues and queueing networks); statistics (time-series, multivariate analysis, design, and reliability); and supply-chain and operations management (pricing, optimization and performance modeling).

Close interaction with permanent department members is expected, but fellows are free to pursue their own research interests.


Up to two fellowships will be awarded. Candidates must have received a Ph.D. degree after September 2006 or should expect to receive one before the fellowship commences in the second half of 2011 (usually in September). The fellowship has a period of one year, and may be extended another year by mutual agreement.

Stipend

The stipend is expected to be between $95,000 and $115,000, depending on the area and length of experience. An additional allowance for moving expenses will be provided.
