How to Apply for an  IACS Postdoctoral Fellowship:

The Institute for Advanced Computational Science offers a limited competition awarding up to 2 postdoctoral fellows per year. Postdoctoral Fellowships are intended for outstanding candidates with recent PhDs who wish to conduct computational-related research at the Institute under the mentorship of core or affiliate IACS faculty researchers.
