The big windfall this year is the brand-new Simons Postdoctoral Fellowship program in theoretical computer science, mathematics, and theoretical physics. Simons Fellowships in theoretical computer science have been announced at CMU (February 28), Cornell (January 30), MIT (January 31), and Princeton (January 1). According to the Simons web site, new postdoc positions will apparently be available in 2010 and again in 2011, most likely at a very similar set of institutions.
Here are the others, in order by application deadline.
- Caltech Center for the Mathematics of Information (December 18)
- TTI Chicago (December 31)
- Princeton Center for Computational Intractability (January 1)
and Institute for Advanced Study (December 1)
- University of Toronto (January 4)
- IBM Research Goldstine Fellowship (January 6)
- DIMACS (January 8)
- Georgia Tech Algorithms, Randomness, and Complexity Center (January 10)
- Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik (January 31)
- Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (February 15)
- Århus Center for Massive Data Algorithms (MADALGO) (no deadline announced)
(And before you ask: No, I do not just happen to know somebody with postdoc funding.)
