The Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) is
seeking postdocs and visiting scholars for 2014-15. Language-Based
Security is one the key areas that we're interested in. Details below,
and at http://crcs.seas.harvard.edu/apply.
Steve Chong and Greg Morrisett.
The Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS)
solicits applications for its Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Scholars
Programs for the 2014-2015 academic year. Postdoctoral Fellows are given
an annual salary of approximately $63,000 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
- Privacy and Security in Targeted Advertising
- Privacy Tools for Sharing Research Data
- Theory and Applications of Social Computing
- Tools for Enabling Large-Scale Public Engagement in Research
There are numerous opportunities for CRCS fellows and visiting scholars
to engage with Harvard faculty, students, and scholars in computer
science and other disciplines, including the bi-weekly CRCS Lunch
Seminar series, various informal CRCS lunches, and other research group
meetings. Additionally, CRCS has close ties with Harvard’s Berkman
Center for Internet and Society, and CRCS fellows attend the weekly
Berkman fellows' meeting.
Harvard University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
We are particularly interested in attracting women and underrepresented
groups to participate in CRCS. For further information about the Center
and its activities, see http://crcs.seas.harvard.edu/.
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
crcs-apply at seas.harvard.edu
References for postdoctoral fellows 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 Friday, December 13, 2013.
