    positions and to other positions in industry.

    The position is for one year and can be renewed up to two more years based
    on mutual agreement. As such, this is a duration-limited position. Of the
    postdoctoral researchers at IBM Research, some are converted to permanent,
    non-duration-limited, positions during the course of their postdoctoral
    fellowship. However, no guarantee of such conversion can be made ahead of
    time.

    We are actively recruiting for this position now and wish to fill at least
    one position soon, but regardless of your availability date, we encourage
    you to apply to the position, as it is possible for multiple positions to
    become available during the course of 2014. Therefore, while there is a
    preference given to candidates who are available to start early in 2014, all
    qualified and interested candidates should apply.
