Your Role and Responsibilities
The IBM Research Mathematical Sciences Council invites applications for its 2020-2021 Herman Goldstine Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship for research in mathematical and computer sciences. The fellowship provides scientists of outstanding ability an opportunity to advance their scholarship as resident department members at one of the IBM Research laboratories. The main hub of mathematical sciences activities in IBM Research is at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Westchester County, less than an hour north of New York City. Math Sciences research is also pursued at many of our global lab locations around the world. IBM Research provides an atmosphere in which basic research is combined with work on practical applications. Our permanent members, academic visitors, and post-doctoral fellows pursue research in pure and applied mathematics and in theoretical and exploratory computer science. Areas of research include: algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning, numerical analysis and scientific computing, dynamical systems, inverse problems, optimization, operations research, applied probability, and statistics. Close interaction with permanent department members is expected and encouraged, but fellows are free to pursue their own research interests.
