Santa Fe Institute Omidyar Fellowship Program
The application period for the 2017 cohort has now closed. We will be accepting applications for the 2018 cohort beginning August 7, 2017 through October 29, 2017
The Omidyar Fellowship at the Santa Fe Institute is unique among postdoctoral appointments. It offers early-career scholars the opportunity to join a collaborative research community that nurtures creative, transdisciplinary thought in pursuit of key insights about the complex systems that matter most for science and society. The Institute rejects compartmentalized thought common in academia. Instead, SFI scientists transcend boundaries between fields, freely synthesizing ideas spanning many disciplines – from math, physics, and biology to the social sciences and the humanities – in pursuit of creative insights that advance our scientific frontiers. Omidyar Fellows spend up to three years in residence at SFI, where they contribute to SFI’s research in the sciences of complexity and become the “new leadership for new science.” As thought leaders who shape the future of science, Omidyar Fellows also participate in a unique training program structured to develop leadership skills throughout their three-year residencies and beyond.
Candidates will receive the invitation for an interview in mid December 2017.
We will conduct candidate interviews in late January 2018 in Santa Fe, NM. Interviews take place over two days, plus travel time.
New Omidyar Fellows are expected to begin their appointment no earlier than June 2018 and no later than October 2018.
