SFI is hiring again

I'm a little late in posting the announcement this year, but here it is.

SFI is hiring postdocs again. Appointments begin Fall 2009. As a current postdoc, I can tell you that SFI is an exceptionally good place to spend a few years doing research. It's not for everyone, but if you do your best work in unstructured environments, have a good nose for asking fundamental questions, and are comfortable working in a highly interdisciplinary environment, then it's hard to beat the freedom and resources SFI provides.

This year's deadline is November 14.

Postdoctoral Fellowship appointments at the Santa Fe Institute begin fall 2009. Appointed for up to three years, fellows pursue research questions of their own design, are encouraged to transcend disciplinary lines, and collaborate with SFI faculty, other Fellows, and researchers from around the world. Fellows are encouraged to invite speakers, organize workshops and working groups, and engage in research outside their fields. Funds are available to support this full range of research activities.

The Santa Fe Institute is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. We are building a culturally diverse faculty and staff and strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and covered veterans. Successful foreign applicants must acquire an acceptable visa, usually J-1.

TO APPLY: View the full position announcement and application instructions at www.santafe.edu/postdoc. Application due by November 14, 2008. For further information, email postdocinfo@santafe.edu.
