The Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth College invites applications for the Neukom Postdoctoral Fellowship. We expect to appoint several fellows, with anticipated start date of September 1, 2024.
Neukom Postdoctoral Fellowships are interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s, DMAs, or MFAs whose research interests or practice cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and has some computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual exploration or an explicit part of the work that is pursued. Qualified candidates should have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, while also showing evidence of independence and initiative.

The Neukom Postdoctoral Fellowships are two-year full-time appointments; other than standard research trips, fellows are expected to be in residence at Dartmouth College. Neukom Fellows will be mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take up residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course each year on a subject of their interest. The remainder of fellows' time is dedicated to research and participation in the intellectual life of campus. The fellowship stipend for 2024-2026 will be $65,000 per year (pro-rated in the event of early departure). Additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and research materials. Fellows are eligible for certain benefits, as well as professional development opportunities with the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies.
The Neukom Fellows Program and the Neukom Institute are made possible by a generous gift from Mr. William H. Neukom, Dartmouth College Class of 1964.
