He is searching for a postdoc for a very cool survey - tons of 
free-choice name generators,  linking to biomedical/social data in a 
surveillance system, a 1200 person sociocentric sample and 1000 
egocentric sample, lots of other great stuff.  He's looking for a 
post-doc to join the team and supervise the data collection for the 
first panel. It would be a good chance for an interested network student 
with some background in survey design/management. An interesting aspect 
is that the team will
live in the bush in Senegal for 5-6 months and has to speak French.
