The Jacobs Urban Tech Hub at Cornell Tech (the “Hub”) is soliciting applications for postdoctoral associates (“Postdoc”) for research and engagement with the Hub.
The Hub will provide a postdoctoral associate with an annual salary and benefits plus travel and research funding to allow them to engage in applied research that aligns with and amplifies the Hub’s mission.
We are seeking researchers who are enthusiastic about collaborating with urbanists, scientists and colleagues from other disciplines and who have a demonstrated interest in applied urban tech research. Positions are 1 year in duration and renewable for up to 2 additional years.
Areas of specific research interest for the Hub include the role of artificial intelligence, data analytics, human-computer interaction and privacy/security issues with regard to the planning, operation, management and improving the quality of life in cities.
The ideal Hub Postdoc will have a passion for both technology and cities. The Hub is a highly collaborative environment, and expects Postdocs to engage with both the Cornell Tech community and the public. To that end, the Hub requires Postdocs to creatively share their research and engage the public in forums, partnerships and other communication platforms.
This postdoc position requires a PhD in Computer Science, Information Science, Operations Research, Electrical and Computer Engineering or other related fields such as civil engineering.
