Listen to President Sabloff's February 2012 National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBios) interview HERE
The Santa Fe Institute has had a very busy year with many visitors, working groups, workshops, Complex Systems Summer School and other educational events. Faculty Chair and Vice President for Science Jennifer Dunne is busy reviewing proposals for working groups and arranging visits for SFI External Faculty and other scientists. Moreover, four exceptionally promising Omidyar Post-doctoral Fellows joined us this Fall, while our search for new resident faculty members has been completed. We are excited to announce that Dr. Sidney Redner, currently Chair of the Physics Dept. at Boston University, and Michael Lachmann, a biologist at the Max Planck Institute, have accepted resident faculty positions at SFI beginning in the summer of 2014. In addition, David Wolpert, formerly of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, has joined the faculty in a part-time position.
SFI’s financial picture is the strongest it has been in several years, although our budget remains quite tight. We are striving to strengthen our research and educational activities and are deeply appreciative of any support you can give the Institute (see the “Support SFI” link above).
In addition, our SFI Tesuque campus, generously donated to SFI by Gene and Claire Thaw, is in full swing housing visitors and hosting working groups.
