The intellectual core of the Institute is its array of Fellows—leading researchers who share in the Institute’s mission to drive research through a computational lens. The Institute has several groups of Fellows:
- Faculty & Research Fellows include both faculty whose research projects are funded by the Institute and researchers who have distinguished themselves in contributions to the computational work of the Institute.
- Junior Faculty Fellows, early career researchers, are selected by the Steering Committee through a competitive nomination process for a three-year appointment.
- Graduate Student Fellows are outstanding PhD students pursuing computational and data-driven research, nominated by Institute Faculty Affiliates or graduate admissions committees.
- Postdoctoral Research Fellows have recently earned a PhD and are currently working on a research project of the Institute.
- Visiting Fellows are scholars from other institutions spending time at the Institute in collaborative research endeavors.
Regardless of what type, past Institute Fellows continue to be ambassadors of the Hariri Institute for Computing mission to foster interdisciplinary research in the crossroads of computing and computation science and engineering!
