Neukom Postdoctoral Fellow


Employer: Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College

Neukom Fellows are interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s, DMAs, or MFAs whose research interests or practice cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and has some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual exploration or an explicit component of the work that is pursued. The successful candidate should have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, but still show good evidence of independence and initiative. The Fellowships are two- to three-year appointments, with the third year extension considered upon request after a review early in the second year. Neukom Fellows will be mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take up residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course each year on a subject of their interest. Beyond that there are no additional duties. Neukom Fellow stipends are $60,000 for 2016-2017. Additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and research materials.

Skills/Qualifications:
1. Ph.D. in any discipline or DMA or MFA (or expected by September 2016).
2. Research interests that strongly intersect the theme of computation.
3. A proven ability to work independently and collaboratively.
4. A demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research.
5. Evidence of the ability to think outside traditional paradigms.
