    The Mathematical Sciences department of the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center invites applications for its 2018-2019 Herman Goldstine Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship for research in the 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 department provides an atmosphere in which basic research is combined with work on technical problems arising in industry. Our permanent members, academic visitors, and post-doctoral fellows pursue research in pure and applied mathematics and in theoretical and exploratory computer science. Areas of research include: algorithms (approximation, randomized, and on-line); complex systems; data mining (machine learning, pattern recognition, computational statistics); dynamical systems; high-performance computing (scientific computing, parallel computing, big-data); inverse problems; numerical analysis; optimization (discrete, continuous, global and stochastic); operations research; probability theory (stochastic models, risk management, queues & queuing networks, simulation); and statistics (time-series, multivariate analysis, spatiotemporal analysis, design of experiments & reliability).

    Close interaction with permanent department members is expected and encouraged, 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 2013 or should expect to receive one before the fellowship commences in the second half of 2018 (usually in September). The fellowship has a period of one year, and may be extended another year by mutual agreement. The stipend is expected to be between $130,000 and $150,000, depending on the length of experience. An additional allowance for moving expenses will be provided.
