IACS Postdoctoral Researcher

The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in Computational Science in the Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS), with an expected start date of September 1, 2015. The position is an annual (twelve-month) academic appointment renewable for up to three years, depending on continuing curricular need and performance.

IACS was established in September 2010 with the mission of developing an interdisciplinary education and research program in computational science by infusing the curriculum with new courses and student research opportunities that focus on the use of computation to power discovery and innovation. IACS welcomed its first cohort of master’s students in Computational Science and Engineering in the fall of 2013.

The successful candidate is expected to carry out original research in computational science, supervise student projects, and contribute to the educational activities of the institute, such as curriculum development and participation on student thesis evaluation committees.

Candidates are required to have a doctoral degree in Computer Science, Computational Science, or a related field by the expected start date.

Required documents include a cover letter, a cv, a one-page statement of teaching interests, and names and contact information for at least three references. Applicants with prior teaching experience should submit copies of teaching evaluations as part of their application. Applicants should email all materials in one PDF to
iacs-postdoc@seas.harvard.edu.  We encourage candidates to apply by May 15, 2015, but we will continue to review applications until the position is filled. 

Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
