Job: Postdoctoral positions in personalized accessibility and healthcare at Harvard

Begin forwarded message:

From: Krzysztof Gajos <kgajos@EECS.HARVARD.EDU>
Subject: Postdoctoral positions in topics related to personalized accessibility and healthcare at Harvard
Date: 17 November 2012 11:30:25 AM EST

Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) has a number of postdoctoral fellowships available.  CRCS supports a number of topic areas of broad relevance to society.  For this community, I'd like to point out that we are specifically looking for people with HCI-ish backgrounds interested in personalized accessibility or healthcare.  More info at http://crcs.seas.harvard.edu/postdoctoral-fellowship/ and the full ad is also below. Please forward as appropriate.  Apply by Dec 16 (ideally).  Apply even if you are looking for faculty positions: a number of CRCS fellows already have faculty positions when they join, but they choose to defer for a year to build up their research agendas and connections at CRCS.

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.  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:
Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Scholars Programs
Center for Research on Computation and Society
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 December 16, 2012.
