Hi all,
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/.

Application Procedure

A cover letter, CV, research statement, copies of up to three research 
papers, and up to three letters of reference should be sent to:

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.
