    The IBM Research Mathematical Sciences Council invites applications for its 2022-2023 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 one of the IBM Research laboratories. The main hub of mathematical sciences activities in IBM Research is at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Westchester County, less than an hour north of New York City. Mathematical sciences research is also pursued at many of our global lab locations around the world.
    IBM Research provides an atmosphere in which basic research is combined with work on practical applications. Our permanent members, academic visitors, and postdoctoral fellows pursue research in pure and applied mathematics and in theoretical and exploratory computer science. Areas of research include: algorithms, information theory, artificial intelligence and machine learning, automated theorem proving and program synthesis, algorithmic game theory, numerical analysis and scientific computing, dynamical systems, stochastic optimal control, inverse problems, optimization, operations research, applied probability, and statistics. 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. The fellowship has a period of one year, and may be extended for another year by mutual agreement.
