URGENT: PLEASE FORWARD TO YOUR FACULTY AND GRADUATING PH.D. STUDENTS
The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) and the Computing Research
Association (CRA), with funding from the National Science Foundation,
announce an opportunity for new PhD graduates in computer science and
closely related fields to obtain one-to-two year positions at host
organizations including universities, industrial research
laboratories, and other organizations that advance the field of
computing and its positive impact on society.
The Computing Innovation Fellows project will fund as many as 60
such positions. Applications are due very soon: June 9, 2009.
Awards are expected to be announced by July 10. Positions will

May 1, 2008 and August 31, 2009 in Computer Science, Computer
Engineering, Information Science, or a closely related field are
