Fellowship Description:    

Caltech's Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department announces openings for postdoctoral fellowships, starting in Fall 2020. CMS is a unique department focusing on applied mathematics, computer science and allied fields, emphasizing the interactions between areas and the role these fields play in advancing science and engineering more broadly.

Positions are contingent upon completion of an accredited PhD program.

Applicants are encouraged to find connections with faculty research groups or interdisciplinary centers associated with CMS, such as the following.


  • Caltech's Center for the Mathematics of Information (CMI) announces openings in the CMI Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, for positions beginning in Fall 2020. The CMI is dedicated to fundamental mathematical research with an eye to the roles of information and computation throughout science and engineering. Areas of interest include algorithms, complexity, cryptography, applied combinatorics, applied probability & stochastic processes, statistics & machine learning, information & coding theory, control & dynamical systems, optimization, networked systems, autonomous systems, geometry processing, formal verification, and multiresolution methods.

    A CV, Research Statement and three reference letters are required. A cover letter and a Teaching Statement are optional. All candidate materials are due by December 1st, 2019 and letters are due by December 15, 2019.


  • The Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at Caltech is seeking postdoctoral researchers in computational mathematics and applications (CMX); see: http://cmx.caltech.edu

    Caltech's CMS Department is a unique environment, focusing on applied mathematics and allied fields, emphasizing fundamentals and methodology, the interactions between areas, and the role these fields play in advancing science and engineering more broadly.

    We invite applications from researchers in all areas of applied mathematics and statistics including (but not limited to) mathematics of data science, numerical analysis, optimization, probability, scientific computing, signal processing, and uncertainty quantification. We also invite applications from researchers who have demonstrated strong connections between computational mathematics and applications in science and engineering.

    A CV; a research statement; and a statement of teaching (addressing interests, experiences, and approaches to a diverse student population); are required. Applicants must also arrange for three confidential letters of reference, one of which should address teaching. Applications will be reviewed starting November 7, 2019. All complete applications received by Nov 30, 2019 will be guaranteed consideration.


  • The Decision, Optimization, and Learning at the California Institute of Technology (DOLCIT) research group announces postdoctoral openings starting Fall 2020. Areas of interest are: decision theory, machine learning, optimization, statistics, and data-driven methods broadly construed.

    DOLCIT brings together people from machine learning, optimization, applied math, statistics, control, robotics, and human-computer interaction to form an intellectual core pertaining fundamental and applied research in "Decision, Optimization, and Learning at the California Institute of Technology." DOLCIT envisions a world where intelligent systems seamlessly integrate learning and planning, as well as automatically balance computational and statistical tradeoffs in the underlying optimization problems. For more information, please visit: http://dolcit.cms.caltech.edu.

    In addition, we have a strong interdisciplinary program at Caltech, AI4Science, that aims to develop and apply Artificial Intelligence to different scientific areas. Candidates with an interest in participating can specify it in their application.

    A CV, a Research Statement, and three reference letters (up to a maximum of five) are required. A cover letter and a Teaching Statement are optional. Applications will be reviewed starting January 1, 2020.


  • The Caltech Social and Information Sciences Laboratory (SISL) invites applications for the Linde Postdoctoral Fellowship in Economics and Computation.

    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.

    Requirements: Positions are contingent upon completion of the PhD. A CV, a Research Statement, and three reference letters (up to a maximum of five) are required. A cover letter and a Teaching Statement are optional. Applications will be reviewed starting on November 15th. The deadline for the receipt of applicant materials is Saturday, December 31st, 2019, and reference letters must follow shortly.

    NOTE: This position is also advertised on JOE (Job Openings for Economists). Please apply on only one platform.


  • The Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at Caltech announces an opening for the "von Karman Postdoctoral Instructor in Applied and Computational Mathematics" starting Fall 2020. Caltech's CMS Department is a unique environment, focusing on applied mathematics, computer science and allied fields, emphasizing fundamentals and methodology, the interactions between areas, and the role these fields play in advancing science and engineering more broadly.

    The von Karman Postdoctoral Instructorship is open to candidates showing exceptional promise in research and instruction, and we invite applications from researchers in all areas of applied mathematics and statistics including (but not limited to) machine learning, numerical analysis, optimization, probability, scientific computing, signal processing, and uncertainty quantification. We also invite applications from researchers who have demonstrated strong connections between computational mathematics and applications in science and engineering. The instructorship is offered as a two-year position, and, depending on mutual interests, may be extended to a third year.  Candidates are expected to contribute to teaching in the department, as well as pursue research. The teaching requirement consists of 2-3 quarters per year with the subject matter mutually agreed upon to provide a balance between departmental needs and research interests of the candidate.

    A CV; a statement of teaching (addressing interests, experiences, and approaches to a diverse student population); and research statement are required. Applicants must also arrange for three confidential letters of reference, one of which should address teaching. Applications will be reviewed starting December 1, 2019.
