Dear BU TCS/crypto/privacy folks,

(Deadline: Dec 15th)

The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley
invites applications for Research Fellowships for academic year
2018-19.


Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are an opportunity for
outstanding junior scientists (at most 6 years from PhD by Fall 2018)
to spend one or both semesters at the Institute in connection with one
or more of its programs.  The programs for 2018-19 are as follows:


* Foundations of Data Science (Fall 2018)

* Lower Bounds in Computational Complexity (Fall 2018)

* Data Privacy: Foundations and Applications (Spring 2019)
   (BU faculty Adam Smith and Sofya Raskhodnikova are involved in this program.)

* Geometry of Polynomials (Spring 2019)


Applicants who already hold junior faculty or postdoctoral positions
are welcome to apply. In particular, applicants who hold, or expect to
hold, postdoctoral appointments at other institutions are encouraged
to apply to spend one semester as a Simons-Berkeley Fellow subject to
the approval of the postdoctoral institution.


Further details and application instructions can be found at
http://simons.berkeley.edu/fellows2018. Information about the
Institute and the above programs can be found at

Deadline for applications: 15 December, 2017.


Peter Bartlett

Associate Director, Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing
