Two postdoctoral positions in computational social science are available
at the Collaborative Social Systems Lab with dual appointments at the
Network Science Institute and the D'Amore-McKim School of Business at
Northeastern University, to work in the lab of Christoph Riedl.
Candidates will be expected to work on a combination of their own
research and collaborative projects within the lab. The collaborative
projects are wide ranging, including large-scale network datasets (art
exhibitions and creative collaborations), and experimental data on
groups (crowdsourcing, and collective intelligence). Collaborators
include faculty at Northwestern, Carnegie Mellon, MIT, and Stanford.

recent publications and the array of projects. Key conceptual foci will
range from understanding social processes on networks, collaboration in
groups and organizations, social influence, and collective intelligence.
Particular priorities for hiring this year are: (1) demonstrated
capability to work with large network data, and (2) experience in
(social scientific--especially online) experimental research.
A wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds will be considered
(current/past disciplines represented in the lab include computational
social science, computer science, economics, applied math, and cognitive
psychology) but ability to handle and analyze large data sets, creative
thinking, and an interest in working collaboratively across disciplines
is a must. Compensation will be competitive.
If you are interested, please send a cover letter, CV, and two letters
of reference to: [log in to unmask] by March 15 (sooner is better). Please
label e-mails with POSTDOC 2018.
