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. 
Visit to get a sense of 
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.
