Resilience Pod Call for Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Applications

The Simons Institute invites applications for postdoctoral positions hosted by the Research Pod on Resilience in Brain, Natural, and Algorithmic Systems. Some topics in computer science related to resilience that Simons Institute affiliated researchers specialize in include building new modalities for error-correcting codes tolerant to a variety of error models; robust algorithms for inference and machine learning addressing model mismatch, distributional shifts, adversarial examples and other issues; and fault-tolerance in quantum computation. 

The postdoctoral candidate can have a primary focus on any topic broadly related to resilience. The ideal candidate will in addition take initiatives to engage in cross-disciplinary conversations with researchers understanding resilience in the brain, which will hopefully lead to new insights and inquiries. 

Each applicant should prepare the following documents in a single PDF file:

1. Cover letter, briefly describing your interest in the position and the term you are seeking (a particular semester, longer or shorter, up to one year);
2. Curriculum vitae, including a full list of publications.

In addition, applicants must submit the names and email addresses of three recommenders using the application form linked below. When an applicant submits this form, each recommender will receive an automatically generated request for a letter. Applicants may wish to check with their recommenders before the deadline that they have submitted their letters; it is ultimately the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the letters be submitted.

To apply, please complete the application form. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

Interested candidates are encouraged to reach out to simonsdirector [at] with any questions.
