HHMI 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."

Bryn Mawr College, with support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, invites applications for a two-year research / teaching postdoctoral fellowship in computational methods in science starting September 2005 for individuals with graduate training in a natural science or mathematics.  A Ph.D. at the time of appointment is required. 

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 in addition to an annual salary of $42,000 plus benefits (medical insurance, FICA, pension). The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in programs sponsored by the College's Center for Science in Society.

Early in the application process, candidates are requested to identify a potential Bryn Mawr faculty mentor in one of the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental studies, geologyphysics) or in mathematics, whom they will contact to develop an outline of reseach and teaching.

Applications should include:

    • Cover letter
    • CV
    • Outline of research and teaching to be done while at Bryn Mawr College
    • Three references 

Send all applications to: Professor Peter Brodfuehrer, Computational Search Committee, 290 Park Science Center, Bryn Mawr College, 101 N. Merion Avenue, Bryn Mawr PA 19010-2899 USA

Review of applications will begin January 2005 by the HHMI Advisory Committee and the top two candidates will be invited to campus for interviews before making a final selection.

Bryn Mawr College is a liberal arts college for women with coeducational graduate programs in the sciences, some humanities, and social work.  The College supports faculty excellence in both teaching and research, and provides a rigorous education in the context of a diverse and pluralistic scholarly community. 

Bryn Mawr College is an equal-opportunity, affirmative action employer. Minority candidates and women are especially encouraged to apply.

For further information, contact Peter Brodfuehrer. Please do not send electronic applications to this address.
