The Santa Fe Institute enters the Spring season with optimism. Despite the sneezes and teary eyes caused by a particularly strong onset of juniper pollen, SFI faculty and staff are looking forward to a productive 2013. New Faculty Chair and Vice President for Science Jennifer Dunne has hit the deck running and is busy reviewing proposals for working groups and arranging visits for SFI External Faculty and other scientists. Moreover, four exceptionally promising Omidyar Post-doctoral Fellows have accepted our invitation to join us later this year, while our search for a new resident faculty member is proceeding well.
SFI’s financial picture this Spring is the strongest it has been in several years, although our budget remains quite tight. We are striving to strengthen our research and educational activities and are deeply appreciative of any support you can give the Institute (see the “Support SFI” link above).
In addition, we have taken possession of the 36-acre estate in nearby Tesuque that was generously donated to SFI by Gene and Claire Thaw and are already busy installing new wireless and internet connection capabilities and planning for future long-term uses of this terrific property. For now, the estate will be used to house faculty and sabbatical visitors to SFI.
