_IBM Research_ <http://www.research.ibm.com/> is proud to announce the
2011 Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computer Science
and Computer Engineering in memory of Dr. Josef Raviv, the founder and
director of the _IBM Research - Haifa_ <http://www.haifa.il.ibm.com/>
laboratory. Dr. Raviv had a distinguished research career in Information
Theory and was a pioneer in the Israeli high-tech industry.
IBM will offer one postdoctoral fellowship to a recent Ph.D. who shows
exceptional promise for a research career in computer science or
computer engineering. The fellowship will be for one year, with an
opportunity for IBM to renew for an additional year conditional on
funding availability. The stipend will be at least $100,000 (may be
prorated if an IBM Research lab outside the U.S. is selected) plus
reasonable moving and travel expenses. A candidate must have received a
Ph.D. degree between January 2007 and August 2011.
Depending on proposed collaborations, the Fellow will spend most of
his/her time at a laboratory of his/her choice from one of IBM’s
Research laboratories that include: Almaden (San Jose, California, USA),
Austin (Texas, USA), Brazil (Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro), China
(Beijing), Haifa (Israel), India (Delhi or Bangalore), Tokyo (Japan),
Thomas J. Watson (Westchester County, New York, or Cambridge, MA, USA),
Zurich (Switzerland). The Fellow will be free to follow his/her own
research interests, but is expected to work closely with other IBM
researchers. Applicants are encouraged to identify IBM Research groups
working in their area of interest.
To apply, please submit these documents by January 16, 2011:
· Resume (include contact e-mail, postal address and phone number).
· Thesis summary (one-page maximum).
· Research proposal (no more than two pages, if possible).
· Indicate the proposed lab. If you know of a specific group(s) which
you would like to join and/or researcher(s) you would like to work with,
indicate that as well. If there are multiple groups, list at most three.
· Reprint of applicant's most significant research publications.
· Three (3) reference letters, including one from the Ph.D. thesis
advisor. Letters should be sent directly by recommenders to:
*[log in to unmask]*
The applicant is responsible for ensuring that all required materials
arrive by January 16, 2011. All documents must contain the applicant's
name and email address (we prefer information as PDF or Word documents)
and be sent to: *[log in to unmask]*
A committee of IBM researchers co-chaired by Dilma da Silva and Richard
Hull will select the Fellow.
Applicants will be notified by March 14, 2011. The fellowship begins
September 6, 2011, unless another date is agreed upon.
