Postdoctoral fellows support ongoing research at the Santa Fe Institute

In addition to offering institutional postdoctoral complexity fellowships, the Santa Fe Institute presents exciting opportunities for program postdoctoral fellowships in complexity science. These fellowships are funded through a variety of government agency and foundation sources; current funders for program postdoctoral fellowships at SFI include the National Science Foundation, NASA and the US Department of Agriculture. 

Program Postdoctoral Fellowships are typically one to three years in length. Selected for their multidisciplinary backgrounds, Program Fellows collaborate with faculty members who have obtained grant funding that includes a postdoctoral position; research focuses on the specific objectives and goals outlined in the grant(s) providing funding. Current projects reflect SFI’s overall mission to understand and unify the underlying, shared patterns in complex physical, biological, social, cultural, and technological worlds; the research foci are broadly transdisciplinary in scope. Current fellows have disciplinary backgrounds in a broad range of fields including software and information systems, statistical physics, informatics, mathematics, cognitive science, electrical engineering, economics and sociology.

Open Program Postdoctoral Fellowship positions are posted on the SFI website; each posting contains application instructions.
