The research groups of Profs. Daniel Larremore and Aaron Clauset at the
University of Colorado Boulder seek exceptional candidates for a
postdoctoral research associate, to work on an innovative project at the
intersection of Computational Social Science, the Science of Science,
Statistical Inference, and Dynamical Systems. The initial term of the
position is one year, with the possibility of up to two renewals, and will
begin no later than August 2019. The project will include collaborations
with Prof. Jen Dunne and Prof. Mirta Galesic at the Santa Fe Institute.
Ideal candidates will have a strong mathematical, statistical, and
computing background; a strong track record of innovative research and
publications in selective venues; and expertise in computational social
science and data science. The project will focus on developing new
statistical and mathematical models of the causal forces that shape the
structure and dynamics of the scientific workforce, spanning individual
researchers and their careers, competition among departmental units, and
the evolution of entire fields. Our main tools are probabilistic models,
random walks, causal inference, and statistical algorithms, coupled with
ideas from statistical physics and ecology. Familiarity with one or more of
these techniques is desirable, but is not a requirement.
-- a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science,
Statistics, or Physics, or in a quantitative branch of Ecology, Sociology,
or Computational Social Science, or in a similar field, conferred no later
than August, 2019;
-- education or training in statistics, data analysis, and programming;
-- strong verbal and written communication and presentation skills;
-- a commitment to working in an interdisciplinary and collaborative
Applicants should submit the following:
-- a 1-page cover letter that succinctly describes your background and
qualifications, and lists two published papers that illustrate your track
-- a full curriculum vitae (CV),
-- a 2-page statement of research interests and accomplishments, and
-- contact information for at least 3 references
Applications are submitted via
