|2005 Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship|
Due to procedural complications, the decision on the Joe Raviv fellowship has been unavoidably delayed. We are making an effort to announce the winner by May end.
IBM is proud to announce the 2005 Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computer Science and Computer Engineering in memory of Dr. Raviv, the founder and director of IBM's Haifa Research Laboratory. Dr. Raviv had a distinguished research career in Information Theory and was a pioneer in the Israeli high-tech industry.
IBM will offer one postdoctoral fellowship to a recent Ph.D. who shows exceptional promise for a research career in computer science or computer engineering. The fellowship will be for one year, with an opportunity for IBM to renew for an additional year. The stipend will be at least $95,000 (depending on experience of the recipient) plus reasonable moving and travel expenses. A candidate must have received the Ph.D. degree between January 2001 and August 2005.
Depending on proposed collaborations, the Fellow will spend most of his/her time at one of the IBM Research labs in the US: Almaden Research Center (California), Austin Research Lab (Texas), or Thomas J. Watson Research Center (New York). The Fellow will be free to follow his/her own research interests, but is expected to work closely with other IBM researchers. Applicants are encouraged to identify IBM Research groups working in the area of their interest. The Fellow will be expected to visit IBM's Haifa Research Lab and give a seminar at the Hebrew University (Jerusalem).

Applicants will be notified by the end of April 2005. The fellowship will start on September 5, 2005, unless another date is agreed upon.
IBM has long pursued major research programs in Computer Science and Computer Engineering. More than 1200 CS/CE researchers work in IBM Research labs in six countries, pursuing topics in almost all disciplines of computer science. Last year, our researchers published more than 1000 journal, conference, and workshop papers. For more information about the breadth of our activities (and for any postdoctoral fellowship program updates), please see http://www.research.ibm.com/compsci/ and www.research.ibm.com/disciplines/electrical_eng.shtml.
IBM is committed to creating a diversified environment, and proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
