Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships for 2020-2021
The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing invites applications for Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are intended for up-and-coming researchers who are getting close to defending their PhD degree or are at most 6 years past it at the start of the academic year 2020-21. This includes researchers who already hold junior faculty or postdoctoral positions. In particular, applicants who expect to have postdoc positions at other institutions are encouraged to apply to spend one semester as a Simons-Berkeley Fellow, subject to the approval of the home institution.
In each semester of residence, each Fellow will normally participate in at least one of the ongoing programs at the Institute. We wish to highlight the semester program "Satisfiability: Theory, Practice, and Beyond", which will run in the spring of 2021 in parallel with "Theoretical Foundations of Computer Systems".
