Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE) Post-Doctoral Fellowships – Call for Applications
UCLA’s Institute for Digital Research and Education invites applications for Post-Doctoral fellowships. These IDRE fellowships will provide partial support for research conducted in the academic year 2021-21 and related to the IDRE programs, including projects involving advanced computing, GPU and many core-based computing architectures, statistical computing and data science and informatics, including deep learning, virtual reality, GIS, data visualization, and 3D modeling. The IDRE scholars will have direct access to and interact with technologists within the OARC Research Technology Group and relevant IDRE affiliated faculty and researchers.
Any postdoc or individual who holds a doctoral degree and is engaged in advanced training and education, and conducts research under the guidance of a faculty member at UCLA is eligible to apply for the above mentioned postdoc fellowship.
Applications of no more than two pages must be submitted by the faculty mentor/project PI. Successful proposals will have identified a fellow candidate, a clear articulation of their intended contribution to an ongoing research project, and a commitment from project partners to provide additional funding, facilities, and other support for the candidate. Applications that feature innovative and computationally based solutions to research problems with a potentially broad impact to the campus will be given the highest priority. Illustrations and appendices of no more than two pages can be submitted to support the application narrative.
The IDRE Scholars will be required to present their own research. Over the year, they will also be asked to help organize activities for the IDRE Early career researchers (ECR) group, including a workshop related to their own research interests. Typical yearly events for the ECR group involve an initial poster session, monthly seminars or workshops, and a concluding event such as a panel session or a similar interactive activity.
It is anticipated that two to four fellowships will be awarded with typical awards between $5,000 and $10,000. Funding for successful applications will be transferred directly to the faculty mentors’ home departments as a way to partially defray costs for the research appointment. The list of previous recipients can be found at https://idre.ucla.edu/early-career-researchers-group.
The application deadline is June 30, 2021. Submissions should be sent to email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed by an IDRE-affiliated faculty and researcher committee.
