The Omidyar Fellowship at the Santa Fe Institute is unique among
postdoctoral appointments. It offers select 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.

** transdisciplinary collaboration with leading researchers worldwide
** up to three years in residence in Santa Fe, New Mexico
** discretionary research and collaboration funds

The Institute has no formal programs or departments. Research is
collaborative and spans the physical, natural, and social sciences. Most
research is theoretical (SFI does not have lab facilities) and/or
computational in nature, although some research includes an empirical
