Postdoctoral Fellowships in Complex Systems Studies at the Santa Fe Institute
The Santa Fe Institute expects to have an opening for one or more
Postdoctoral Fellows beginning in September, 1998.
The Institute's multidisciplinary research program is devoted to the study
of complex systems, especially complex adaptive systems. Topics currently
under study include nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation; measures of
complexity; learning algorithms; agent-based modeling and simulation tools;
evolutionary biology; models of the immune system, cellular regulation, and
other biological systems; models of economic, political and social
interactions, and others. Postdoctoral Fellows work either on existing
research projects or on projects of their own choosing.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. (or expect to receive one before September
1998) in the mathematical, computational, physical, biological or social
sciences, with an academic record of scientific excellence, a demonstrated
ability for independent research, and a strong interest in

experimental work or data collection at locations other than SFI.
Candidates with such interests are requested to submit an outline of the
proposed offsite project, along with a supporting letter from the
organization through which the experiments or data collection is to be
coordinated. Although their primary reserach site will be SFI, successful

SFI in support of offsite research.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, and
statement of research interests, and arrange for three letters of
recommendation. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

would enter the U.S. in either J or, less likely, an H visa.
