Job Description

The Complexity Postdoctoral Fellowships, comprising the Omidyar and ASU-SFI Fellowships, at the Santa Fe Institute are unique among postdoctoral appointments. The Fellowships offer early-career scholars the opportunity to join a collaborative research community that nurtures creative, transdisciplinary thought in pursuit of key insights about the complex systems that matter most for science and society. The Institute rejects compartmentalized thought common in academia. Instead, SFI scientists transcend boundaries between fields, freely synthesizing ideas spanning many disciplines – from math, physics, and biology to the social sciences and the humanities – in pursuit of creative insights that advance our scientific frontiers.

The application form, requirements and program for both fellowships are identical it is only the funding source that differs. The applicant does not have to choose which fellowship to apply for, SFI will determine the fellowship that is awarded.

* strong computational and quantitative skills
* an exemplary academic record
* a proven ability to work both independently and collaboratively
