fyi.  I know they would be quite interested in people at the intersection
of social networks and data science...


The Boston Area Research Initiative (BARI) seek applications to fill up to
two Postdoctoral Fellow positions in the social sciences, with a focus on
urban inequality, the life course and social change, and new data sources
on cities. Appointments would be joint at Harvard and Northeastern

We seek self-driven, creative thinkers with strong quantitative and
interpersonal skills. For one position, the successful candidate will
participate in the Boston Area Research Initiative’s efforts to translate
modern digital data (e.g., administrative records, social media posts,
sensor readings) into products that advance urban scholarship, theory, and
social policy. Areas of activity will include, but will not be limited to:
designing, executing, and managing the retrieval, documentation, and
analysis of digital data from various sources, to be stored and published
through BARI’s Boston Data Portal; proposing, pursuing, and disseminating
results from original research projects utilizing those and complementary
data; coordinating with research partners, including universities, public
agencies, and private corporations; helping to manage and mentor students
working with BARI, collaborating on papers and grants, and taking part in
the intellectual community of scholars through workshops and conferences.
Specific areas of research interest are flexible provided they focus on
some aspect of urban science and policy.
