Caltech's Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) department announces openings for postdoctoral fellowships, starting in Fall 2019.

CMS runs an active, interdisciplinary postdoctoral program that typically has upwards of 20 postdoctoral scholars in any given year. These postdoctoral scholars are sponsored by individual faculty and research groups, as well as through cross-cutting centers such as the Social and Information Sciences Laboratory (SISL). SISL brings together researchers from computer science, economics, engineering and mathematics in a truly interdisciplinary environment. The researchers at SISL strive to improve the basic sciences of complex markets and social/communication networks while helping to develop our understanding of the emerging interaction between the two.

This year, the Social and Information Sciences Laboratory (SISL) and a few of our other postdoc programs will be accepting applications through this posting. Many of these programs will recruit multiple postdoctoral scholars.

Other programs currently accepting applications are as follows:
