2013 Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoc Fellowship

IBM Research announces the 2013 Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computer Science and Computer Engineering in memory of Dr. Josef Raviv.

IBM will offer one postdoctoral fellowship to a recent Ph.D. who shows exceptional promise for a research career in computer science or computer engineering. The fellowship will be for one year, with an opportunity for IBM to renew for an additional year conditional on funding availability. The stipend will be highly competitive, and will include reasonable moving and travel expenses. A candidate must have received a Ph.D. degree between January 2009 and August 2013.

Depending on proposed collaborations, the Fellow will spend most of his/her time at one of IBM’s worldwide research laboratories. The Fellow will be free to follow his/her own research interests, but is expected to work closely with other IBM researchers. Applicants are encouraged to identify IBM Research groups working in their area of interest.

Application deadline:  January 6, 2013
Please submit the following documents via email to
  • Resume (include contact e-mail, postal address, phone number).
  • Thesis summary (one-page maximum).
  • Research proposal (no more than two pages).
  • Indicate the proposed lab. If you know of a specific group(s) which you would like to join and/or researcher(s) you would like to work with, indicate that as well. If there are multiple groups, list at most three.
  • Reprint of applicant's most significant research publications.
  • Three (3) reference letters, including one from the Ph.D. thesis advisor. Letters should be sent directly by recommenders to
Applicants will be notified by March 15, 2013. The fellowship begins in early September, unless another date is agreed upon.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…
