    The Omidyar Fellowship at the Santa Fe Institute is unique among
    postdoctoral appointments. The Institute has no formal programs or
    departments. Research is collaborative and spans the physical, natural, and
    social sciences. Most research is theoretical and/or computational in
    nature, although it may include an empirical component. SFI typically has 15
    Omidyar Fellows and postdoctoral researchers, 12 resident faculty, 100
    external faculty, and 250 visitors per year. Descriptions of the research
    themes and interests of the faculty and current Fellows can be found at

    Requirements include a Ph.D. in any discipline (or expect to receive one by
    September 2013), an exemplary academic record, strong quantitative and
    computational skills, a proven ability to work both independently and
    collaboratively, a demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research and
    evidence of the ability to think outside traditional paradigms. The Santa Fe
    Institute is an equal opportunity employer, and women, veterans, and members
    of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. U.S.
    citizenship is not a requirement.

    The SANTA FE INSTITUTE is a private, independent, multidisciplinary research
    and education center. SFI seeks to catalyze new collaborative,
    multidisciplinary research; to break down the barriers between traditional
    disciplines; to spread its ideas and methodologies to other institutions;
    and to encourage the practical application of its results. The Omidyar
    Fellowship at the Santa Fe Institute is made possible by a gift from Pierre
    and Pam Omidyar.
