About Northeastern:
Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the confines of discipline, degree, and campus.

Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.

Northeastern's comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.

About the Opportunity:
Khoury College of Computer Sciences is looking for a postdoctoral research associate.

Responsibilities:
The postdoctoral research associate will work on developing efficient methods for computational modeling theory of mind reasoning about mental states and behaviors of other agents - whether human, robotic or software. The modeling will be done within a partially observable markov decision process and in support of social interaction and decision-making.

Qualifications:
The candidate should have a background doing research in multi-agent systems, human-ai interaction, and partially observable markov decision processes. Especially critical is research experience in modeling and empirically validating human behavior in high stress situations.

Must have a Ph.D. or equivalent; be able to undertake substantially full-time research or scholarship; work under the supervision of a senior scholar.

Salary Grade:
10
