Center for Computational Intractiblity

This popped into my mailbox, and I can't see any reason not to pass on the announcement here. Especially notice the bit at the end about postdocs (get your paperwork in NOW!!!).


Dear Colleague:

I am writing to tell you about a new Center for Computational Intractability that is funded by the National Science Foundation and is a collaborative effort between Princeton University, Institute for Advanced Study, Rutgers University, and New York University. The PIs are Allender, Arora, Barak, Charikar, Chazelle, Impagliazzo, Khot, Naor, Saks, Szegedy,Wigderson, and Tarjan.

The Center's mission views "intractability" fairly broadly, and covers both algorithms and complexity theory as well as other topics in theoretical CS. I would like to draw your attention specifically to the following: (a) Visiting possibilities for short-to-medium term (up to 1 year). We can pay travel costs and salary. (b) Several workshops a year, with possibilities to visit the center at the same time. (We can pay expenses.) (c) Postdoctoral positions both at the center and at the affiliated institutions. (d) Streaming videos of all center activities and seminars and other web-based resources.

I invite you to visit our website and to especially click on "Opportunities" from the sidebar.

I was wondering if you could forward this email to others in your department (including students and postdocs) who may be interested in the center's activities. Please note that the deadline for postdoc applications is December 15, and the deadline for postdoc applications to IAS is December 1.

With best regards,

Sanjeev Arora
