In its second year, 2014-15, the Institute will host three further research programs on the following topics: in Fall 2014, Algorithmic Spectral Graph Theory and Algorithms & Complexity in Algebraic Geometry, and in Spring 2015, Information Theory. Descriptions of these programs and other information about the Institute can be found at simons.berkeley.edu. The Institute invites applications for Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships for the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters. Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are intended for exceptional young scientists (within at most six years of the award of their PhD at the start of academic year 2014-15).
Applicants who already hold junior faculty or postdoctoral positions are welcome to apply. In particular, applicants who hold, or expect to hold, postdoctoral appointments at other institutions are encouraged to apply to spend one semester as a Simons-Berkeley Fellow subject to the approval of the postdoctoral institution. The Institute expects to award about 25 Fellowships in 2014-15; the majority of these are for one semester, but several appointments for a full academic year are expected to be made. In each semester of residence each Fellow will normally participate in at least one of the ongoing programs at the Institute.
