IBM Research is proud to announce the 2009 Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computer Science and Computer Engineering in memory of Dr. Josef Raviv, the founder and director of the IBM Research Laboratory in Haifa. Dr. Raviv had a distinguished research career in Information Theory and was a pioneer in the Israeli high-tech industry.
IBM will offer one postdoctoral fellowship to a recent Ph.D. who shows exceptional promise for a research career in computer science or computer engineering. The fellowship will be for one year, with an opportunity for IBM to renew for an additional year. The stipend will be at least $100,000 (may be prorated if an IBM Research lab outside the U.S. is selected) plus reasonable moving and travel expenses. A candidate must have received a Ph.D. degree between January 2005 and August 2009.
Depending on proposed collaborations, the Fellow will spend most of his/her time at a lab of his/her choice from one of IBM’s Research labs including: Almaden Research Center (San Jose, California, USA), Austin Research Lab (Texas, USA), China Research Lab (Beijing), Haifa Research Lab (Israel), India Research Lab (Delhi or Bangalore), Tokyo Research Lab (Japan), Thomas J. Watson Research Center (Westchester County, New York, or Cambridge, MA, USA), Zurich Research Lab (Switzerland),. The Fellow will be free to follow his/her own research interests, but is expected to work closely with other IBM researchers. Applicants are encouraged to identify IBM Research groups working in their area of interest.
To apply, please submit these documents by February 2, 2009:
- Resume (include contact e-mail, postal address and phone number).
- Thesis summary (one-page maximum).
- Research proposal (no more than two pages, if possible).
- Indicate the proposed lab. If you know of a specific group(s) which you would like to join and/or researcher(s) you would like to work with, indicate that as well. If there are multiple groups, list at most three.
- Reprint of applicant's most significant research publication .
- Three (3) reference letters, including one from the Ph.D. thesis advisor. Letters should be sent directly by recommenders to: firstname.lastname@example.org
