PURPOSE: The program of the Mathematical Sciences Department is
organized for research in pure and applied mathematics, and in
theoretical and exploratory computer science.

DEADLINE: January 10, 2000

SUMMARY: The Mathematical Sciences Department of the IBM Thomas J,
Watson Research Center invites applications for its 2000-2001 Herman
Goldstine Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences for research in
mathematical and computer sciences. This fellowship provides
scientists of outstanding ability an opportunity to advance their
scholarship as resident department members at the Research Center.
The department provides an atmosphere in which basic research is
combined with experience on technical problems arising in industry.

On-going research in the department includes work on biometrics, coding
theory, computational biology, computational complexity, computational
linguistics, computer music, computer vision, continuous complexity,
cryptography, differential equations, dynamical systems, high-
performance computation, interactive scientific and technical
publishing, knowledge-based systems, logic design, mathematical
optimization, numerical analysis, scheduling algorithms, sequential
and parallel algorithms, statistics, stochastic optimization, user
interface technology, and yield management. Close interaction with
permanent department members is expected, but fellows will be free
to pursue their own research interest. Each candidate must have a
doctorate and not more than five years of pastdoctoral professional
experience when the fellowship commences. The fellowship has a period
of one year, and may be extended by another year on mutual agreement.

The stipend will depend on the experience of the fellowship recipient,
but will be at least $70,000 per year. In addition, there will be an
allowance for moving expenses. The Research Center is located in
Westchester County, approximately forty miles north of New York City.

To apply, please submit the following by January 10, 2000: resume,
including thesis summary, reprints of publications based on thesis and
other research; a research proposal; and visa status. Citizens of
countries defined as restricted by the U.S. Department of Commerce are
required to have a Green card or an equivalent visa status. Please
indicate where you first learned about the fellowship. Applicants are
responsible for requesting that three or more letters of reference,
including one from the thesis advisor, arrive before January 10, 2000.
Applicants are encouraged to send PDF or DVI electronic versions of
their supporting materials. Please send material as email attachments
to mathfell@us.ibm.com and ensure that each email includes your name
and institution. One fellowship will be awarded. Each applicant
will be notified in individually as soon as the committee has reached
a decision on the application, no later than March 3, 2000.
