The Collaborative Social Systems Lab at the Network Science Institute at 
Northeastern University seeks to hire a post-doctoral fellow with a 
background in organizational behavior, human-computer interaction or a 
related disciplines to collaborate on on-going research projects on 
collective intelligence, and networked problem-solving and 
decision-making, to start in Fall 2017.

In our previous work, we have explored how individuals solve challenging 
global tasks in social networks from only local, distributed 
interactions. We have used agent-based modeling, conduct lab and field 
experiments, and analyze observational datasets to study how networked 
interactions influences human behavior, strategies, and success. The 
post-doctoral fellow will be in charge of designing and executing 
large-scale network experiments and work with existing datasets to 
explore how factors like group composition and communication enable 
collective intelligence to emerge in groups.

An ideal post-doctoral fellow will have interests and skills blending 
social network or organizational behavior theory with strong 
quantitative and computational skills. The candidate must have a PhD in 
organizational behavior, economics, HCI, information systems, cognitive 
psychology, quantitative psychology, communication, computer science, or 
a related discipline.  The post-doctoral fellow would be supervised by 
Christoph Riedl, and work with collaborators at Carnegie Mellon, MIT, 
Stanford, and other institutions as part of the larger research group 
working on collective intelligence. The fellowship/position is for two 

Interested candidates should send a personal statement describing career 
objectives, background and experience along with a CV as a single PDF 
file to Christoph Riedl <[log in to unmask]>. Please also have at least two 
references directly send their letters to this email address, with your
