Dear Socnetters,

I would like to bring vacancies in the SENSEable City Lab to your
attention. We are seeking postdoctoral fellows who have research
experience in network science and massive datasets. If you know of
anyone who might be interested, I'd be grateful if you could pass the
job announcement below along.

Thanks a million,

* Postdoctoral positions at the SENSEable City Lab, MIT

The SENSEable City Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology is seeking exceptional candidates to fill several
postdoctoral positions. The focus of the research will be on complex
systems at the urban/regional scale. SENSEable City Lab researchers
come from various disciplines, including architecture, urban planning,
physics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, and the arts. The
lab emphasizes the importance of human behavior and emotion in the
study of pervasive technologies in the urban environment. Research
projects are developed and achieved through a team-based,
multidisciplinary approach. A wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds
will be considered, but experience in handling massive data sets and
network science is a must.

If you are interested, please send a cover letter, CV, links or copies
of relevant publications, and two letters of reference to

** Responsibilities and Qualifications

The responsibilities include:

1) Perform basic or applied research;
2) Extend existing theories and methods;
3) Prepare and write research papers targeted for top tier
   conferences and journals;
4) Contribute to the functioning of the lab including supervising
   students and liaising with other researchers in the community;

The ideal candidate will have a recent Ph.D., a background in physics,
computational biology, statistics, computer science or related areas
and experience in computational modeling, data mining and
analysis. Candidates with a strong analytical background and interest
in interdisciplinary research as evident from published research will
be also given particular attention. Experience or interest in one of
the following fields is a plus, but not necessarily a requirement:
esthetic sense, human-computer interaction, GIS, data fusion, data
visualization, signal processing, human mobility, and transportation.
