(Please note that Language-based Security is one of the ongoing projects 
at Harvard CRCS, and applications from TYPES readers in this area would 
be great.)

The Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) 
solicits applications for its Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Scholars 
Programs for the 2013-2014 academic year. Postdoctoral Fellows are given 
an annual salary of approximately $60,000 for one year (with the 
possibility of renewal) 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 Economics and 
Computer Science, Health Care Informatics, Privacy & Security, and/or 
Technology & Accessibility, and those who may be interested in engaging 
in one of our ongoing/upcoming projects:

- Intelligent, Adaptive Systems for Health Care Informatics
- Language-Based Security
- Personalized Accessibility
- Privacy and Security in Targeted Advertising
- Privacy Tools for Sharing Research Data
- Trustworthy Crowdsourcing

Harvard University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. 
We are particularly interested in attracting women and underrepresented 
groups to participate in CRCS.

A cover letter, CV, research statement, copies of up to three research
