Dartmouth College Neukom Fellows: Call for Applications
The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College is pleased to announce the Neukom Postdoctoral Fellows competition for positions starting September 1, 2022.
Neukom Fellows are interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s, DMAs, or MFAs whose research interests or practice cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and has some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual exploration or an explicit part of the work that is pursued. The successful candidate should have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, but still show evidence of independence and initiative. The Fellowships are two year appointments and, other than standard research trips, Neukom Fellows are expected to be in residence at Dartmouth College. Early departure means early cut-off of support. Neukom Fellows will be mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take up residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course each year on a subject of their interest. Beyond that there are no additional duties. Neukom Fellow stipends are $60,000 for 2022-2023. Additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and research materials.
Requirements: 1. Ph.D. in any discipline or expected by September 2022, DMA or MFA. 2. Research interests strongly intersecting theme of computation. 3. Demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research. 4. Evidence of ability to think outside traditional paradigms.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek out connections with and contact potential Dartmouth mentors as they draft their applications.

5. Three referees whose letters of recommendation speak to the aims of the Fellowship. The application requires the reference email address, the referees will receive an email and have access to upload a letter for that applicant. The applicant will not have access to this letter.
