Designation/Position- Neukom Postdoctoral Fellows
Dartmouth College in USA invites application for Neukom Postdoctoral Fellows position from for eligible and interested candidates
About- In an age in which all forms of knowledge and experience can find their way to the computer, “computation,” whether it be the actual manipulation of digital encodings or a framing for discussion, is central to many of the investigations and innovations that range across the humanities, arts, and sciences. In this way, computation becomes a nexus for much of epistemology and thus, a cause of and opportunity for collaboration. The mission of the Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is to support this broad view of computational investigation across campus, and to catalyze creative thought throughout the Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and Business, for undergraduates, graduate students and faculty.
Research/Job Area- Computational Science

1. 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.
