The Research Pod on Resilience in Brain, Natural, and Algorithmic Systems explores the topic of resilience through an interdisciplinary lens, over the course of three years. The study of resilience (or lack thereof), and of how to proactively incorporate it in a system, is of significance across the biological and natural sciences, complex societal systems such as the economy, engineered systems like the cloud or internet, and fault-tolerant and robust algorithmic systems. One area of particular focus within the pod will be dialogue and collaboration between computer scientists and neuroscientists aimed at understanding the mechanisms underlying resilience in the brain. 

The Simons Institute is currently accepting applicants for postdoctoral positions within the pod. View the call for applications.

UC Berkeley faculty are invited to become affiliated pod members. Contact simonsdirector [at] berkeley.edu to express interest.
