Besides tenure-track and 3-year research faculty positions, TTIC also offers occasional postdoctoral positions mentored by individual faculty members.

Current openings


Toyota Technology Institute at Chicago (TTIC) and Northwestern University (NU) invite applications for postdoctoral fellowships starting in the Fall of 2021 to conduct research in approximation algorithms, beyond-worst-case analysis of algorithms, and high-dimensional data analysis. The postdoctoral fellows will work with Professors Samir Khuller (NU), Konstantin Makarychev (NU), Yury Makarychev (TTIC), and Aravindan Vijayaraghavan (NU). All positions will be based at Northwestern University, but postdocs will be encouraged to spend some time at TTIC.

Applications received by January 1, 2021 will be given full consideration. However, the positions will remain open until filled.
