Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Department/Area Computer Science/Computational Science/Statistics Position Description The Harvard John A.
Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Department of Statistics seeks applicants for three prestigious postdoctoral fellow programs in Computer Science, Computational Science, and Data Science. Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) The Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) solicits applications for its Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Scholars Programs for the 2018-2019 academic year. CRCS provides Postdoctoral Fellows with an annual salary plus travel and research funding to allow Fellows to engage in independent research.
Fellows typically spend between one to three years at CRCS. Visiting Scholars ordinarily bring their own support, but CRCS occasionally offers supplemental funding. We seek researchers enthusiastic to interact with computer scientists and colleagues from other disciplines and who have a demonstrated interest in connecting their research agenda with societal issues.
We currently have activities in the following areas: Digital Economy (Chen, Parkes, Singer) Healthcare Technology (Gajos, Grosz, Kuindersma, Seltzer) Privacy, Security, and Secure Systems (Calmon, Chong, Dwork, Mickens, Vadhan) Social Computing for Societal Problems (Chen, Na Li, Parkes, Waldo) Fairness in Machine Learning (Calmon, Dwork, Seltzer, Zittrain) Scientific Preservation and Reproducibility (Doshi-Velez, Dwork, Seltzer) Network Science (Mitzenmacher, Singer) Text Analysis (Shieber) Citizen Science (Gajos, Sweeney) Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence (Dwork, Seltzer, Shieber, Zittrain) The ideal researcher will have a technical background in an area related to computer science and a desire to creatively use those skills to address problems of societal importance. CRCS is a highly collaborative environment, and we expect Fellows and Scholars to engage with researchers both inside and outside of computer science.
CRCS research has led to important artifacts such as the Helios Voting System and the tools being constructed in the Privacy Tools Project.

CRCS offers Fellows and Visiting Scholars numerous opportunities to engage with Harvard faculty, students and scholars in computer science and other disciplines including: the bi-weekly CRCS lunch seminar series, the CRCS annual symposium, various informal CRCS lunches, and other research group meetings.
Additionally, CRCS has close ties with Harvards Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society, and CRCS Fellows are included in many Berkman Klein Fellows gatherings. -- Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS) The Harvard Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS), together with the Department of Statistics, solicits applications for postdoctoral researcher positions in Computational Science and Data Science for the 2018-2019 academic year. Postdoctoral researchers receive an annual salary to carry out original research in the areas of computational science and data science, supervise student projects, and contribute to the educational activities of the institute, such as curriculum development and participation on student thesis evaluation committees. There are numerous opportunities for IACS postdoctoral researchers to engage with Harvard faculty, students, and scholars in computer science, statistics, and other disciplines, including the bi-weekly IACS lunch seminar series, the IACS annual symposium, student computational challenge and workshops, and applied computation and applied data science courses, including project-based capstone courses.
IACS is the home for students and faculty who are tackling major challenges in science and the world through the use of computational and data-science methods. IACS trains graduate students to solve real-world problems and conduct innovative research by using mathematical models, algorithms, systems innovations, statistics, and machine learning. Embedded within a large liberal arts research University, IACS serves as the focal point for interdisciplinary collaborations in computational science and data science at Harvard and the Boston area community.

Harvard is known for global leadership in education, and the Harvard faculty is composed of men and women who are world-class scholars. Faculty members are passionate and curious individuals who continue their own research while teaching at Harvard. They come from across the country and all over the world, bringing with them a diverse wealth of knowledge. Almost all Harvard College courses are designed, taught and overseen by Harvard faculty, and virtually all FAS faculty are required to teach as part of their duties. The faculty is highly accessible, and Harvard College class sizes are on average below 40, with over half the courses being offered each semester enrolling 10 or fewer students. This allows for a closer student-professor relationship and contributes to the sense of community on campus. Professors also make themselves available to students outside of the classroom, even beyond office hours, such as meeting in the dining hall or before or after class. The faculty at Harvard make a point of connecting with their students to create a fulfilling academic experience.
