Update: I’ve now hired a postdoc, so this call is no longer open.
I just got the news that I have the funds for hiring a postdoc, so here we go! Interested? Read on! Know someone? Share the link!
- I am looking for a postdoc (1+1) years, starting as soon as possible
- Topic: somewhere in the intersection of (temporal) networks + computational social science + data science. Depends on your interests and experience!
- Place: Department of Computer Science, Aalto University, Espoo, Finland
Let’s do this light folks! If you are interested or would like to know more, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) where you briefly describe what you have done so far and what your research interests are. Let me know of any research ideas that fit the above topic! No CV’s or publication lists or PDF attachments at this stage, please! I’ll ask for them later.
I’ll wait at least a couple of weeks to get applications and then we’ll do Skype interviews. Apologies if I cannot answer your email immediately; I’m on parental leave (see below).
What you’ll get:
A great working environment, access to high-quality data, nice colleagues, an international research group with a healthy gender balance, a city/country where things just work, almost endless summer sunlight in compensation for dark winters, decent salary and other benefits (good healthcare), and did I say a great working environment? (We don’t do 80-hour workweeks; no-one expects anyone to work in the weekends; even full professors like me can go on long parental leave; and still we get things done—this is Scandinavia!)
If any present/former colleagues are reading this, feel free to add comments below!
What makes a good candidate:
You should have decent knowledge of complex networks, computational social science, and/or methods of data science, with some published papers; programming skills are required (we mostly use Python and C++ whenever more speed is needed); you should sort of know what you want to do (=have your own research interests). Teaching and supervision experience is a bonus. And of course, you should be a nice human being 🙂
