Hi Tim.  I hope all is well with you.

I'm writing to ask your help in spreading the word about Simons
Institute Research Fellowships for next academic year.  The original
call went out a while ago, and the deadline is in a couple of weeks
from now (Dec 15).  If you could make sure that folks at Stanford are
aware of this, as well as other outstanding young people you know
around the world, that would be great.  Note that the fellowships are
often compatible with other postdocs or junior faculty positions; the
only requirement is that the candidate be at most six years from PhD
by Fall 2015.

I'm appending below the official announcement.  The call for
applications is at

Many thanks,

The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley
invites applications for Research Fellowships for academic year

Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships are an opportunity for
outstanding junior scientists (at most 6 years from PhD by Fall 2015)
to spend one or both semesters at the Institute in connection with one
or more of its programs.  The programs for 2015-16 are as follows:

* Fine-Grained Complexity and Algorithm Design (Fall 2015)
* Economics and Computation (Fall 2015)
* Counting Complexity and Phase Transitions (Spring 2016)
* Algorithmic Challenges in Genomics (Spring 2016)

Applicants who already hold junior faculty or postdoctoral positions
are welcome to apply. In particular, applicants who hold, or expect to
hold, postdoctoral appointments at other institutions are encouraged
to apply to spend one semester as a Simons-Berkeley Fellow subject to
the approval of the postdoctoral institution.

Further details and application instructions can be found at  Information about the
Institute and the above programs can be found at

Deadline for applications: 15 December, 2014.

Associate Director, Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing
