The Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) solicits applications for its Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Scholars Programs for the 2012-2013 academic year. Postdoctoral Fellows are given an annual salary of $60,000 for up to three years to engage in a program of original research, and are provided with additional funds for travel and research support. Visiting Scholars often come with their own support, but CRCS can occasionally offer supplemental funding.
We seek researchers who wish to interact with both computer scientists and colleagues from other disciplines, and have a demonstrated interest in connecting their research agenda with societal issues. We are particularly interested in candidates with interests in Technology & Accessibility, Privacy & Security, and/or Economics and Computer Science, and those who may be interested in engaging in one of our ongoing projects:
- A Health Data Marketplace
- Privacy for Social Science Research
- Privacy and Security in Targeted Advertising
- Trustworthy Crowdsourcing
- Language-Based Security
A cover letter, CV, research statement, copies of up to three research papers, and up to three letters of reference should be sent to: Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Scholars Programs Center for Research on Computation and Society firstname.lastname@example.org
References should send their letters directly, and Visiting Scholar applicants may provide a list of references rather than having letters sent.
The application deadline for full consideration is January 15, 2012.
