Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Methods in Science

"a new postdoctoral fellowship program in computational methods in science, which will provide mentored teaching and research experiences for recent Ph.D. and assist Bryn Mawr faculty in implementing new computational initiatives."

The fellowship, beginning in September 2005, is available for a scientist with graduate training in computational methods and specific expertise in areas/techniques such as modeling, informatics, or emergent systems. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, three references, and a statement of research and teaching interests. They will also need to identify a potential Bryn Mawr faculty mentor in one of the natural sciences or mathematics, whom they will contact early in the application process. The HHMI Advisory Committee will review applications, invite the top two candidates for each position for interviews, and make the final selection.

The fellow will be expected to conduct research in collaboration with a Bryn Mawr faculty member, and teach a course in his/her area of expertise during the spring semester of the first year and each semester of the second year. By virtue of their training in computational methods, the fellow will serve as an important collaborator and resource for current faculty members developing new courses such as Bioinformatics, Ecological Modeling, Emergent Systems, Visualization: Art and Science, and Geographic Information Systems and Science for the College's new minor in Computational Methods in Science.  The fellow will receive research and travel allowances to attend professional meetings, and have the opportunity to participate in programs sponsored by the College's Center for Science in Society.
