Postdoc positionsI'm looking for 1-2 postdocs to study the emergence of group behaviors and collective identities beggining as early as fall 2017. Anyone with an interest in any aspect to this problem is encouraged to apply. This could include (but is not limited to) those with expertise in (i) the development of mathematical models of social behavior based in evolutionary game theory, (ii) the application of machine learning approaches to make inferences about group behaviors from large, noisy datasets or (iii) the development of novel experimental approaches such as online games to test theories about the emergence of group behaviors.
The appointment will be initially for 1 year, with the possibility of reappointment for a further 2 years, and for the first year will be based at the University of Pennsylvania. The successful applicant will be strongly encouraged to develop their own research program under the aegis of the DARPA Next Generation Social Sciences project and to interact and collaborate with other groups involved in this research.
To apply, please send a two paragraph summary research proposal on the emergence of group behaviors and/or collective identities, a CV and contact information for 1-2 references via email to Alex Stewart.
The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE/Affirmative Action employer. Applications are welcome from candidates of any nationality. People from under-represented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Please send enquiries to Alex Stewart.
