Current Job Openings at CMS/W

Visiting Scholars and Postdoctoral Fellows and Associates

Visiting Scholars are our way of facilitating the residency of a limited number of distinguished scholars from other academic institutions or accomplished professionals whose expertise coincides with current research groups. The program is part of its mission of working across disciplines, cultures, and communities. Visiting Scholar positions are non-compensated appointments established to accommodate the scholars’ research and enrich the CMS/W research community.

Postdoctoral Associates are usually associated with one of our research groups as well. They come to MIT to develop their scholarly competence, working under the supervision of MIT faculty members. As these positions become available, they are either announced below and on MIT’s job listings web site and advertised in professional and scholarly publications.

Postdoctoral Fellows come to MIT with grants or fellowships from outside funding agencies or government entities, in order to develop their scholarly and research skills. Funding must be secured prior to making an application for appointment as a Postdoctoral Fellow, and the dates of the appointment must match the dates of the funding.
