The Center for Social and Biomedical Complexity (https://csbc.luddy.indiana.edu/) at Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering is accepting applications for a postdoctoral position on modeling health risks from large-scale online data. The appointments start in Spring 2022.


The postdocs will join a dynamic and interdisciplinary team that includes systems scientists, biologists, cognitive scientists, computer scientists, and social scientists. The postdocs will work with Prof. Johan Bollen (https://informatics.indiana.edu/jbollen/), conducting interdisciplinary research at the intersection of complex networks and systems, data science, computational social science, cognitive science, and health. We specifically encourage candidates to apply who are interested in the application of network science, machine learning, NLP, and systems science methods to model individual health risk trajectories.
