The Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) is currently accepting applications for postdoctoral fellows and summer fellows for 2022. Applications are due December 15th, 2021 though the postdoc position will accept applications until the positions are filled.
CRCS brings together computer scientists and scholars from a broad range of fields to make advances in computational research that serve public interest. We are currently collaborating on interdisciplinary projects in areas such as population health, poverty and inequality, and conservation. CRCS is informed by a deep knowledge of the societal issues at stake and a commitment to advancing the human condition through cutting edge collaborations between computational and social science.
Applicants to the CRCS Postdoctoral fellowship should have a doctoral or terminal degree in Computer Science or a related area by the start of the fellowship and a desire to creatively use those skills to address problems of societal importance. Fellows will engage with researchers within and beyond computer science. CRCS provides postdoctoral fellows with an annual salary of $75,000 plus travel and research funding to allow them to engage in independent research. Fellows may spend up to two years at CRCS. More information about the fellowship and application process can be found here.
CRCS also invites applications from Ph.D. students in computer science and public health to participate in the 2022 fellowship program. Students from a wide range of disciplines interested in research at the interface of computing and society are encouraged to apply. All Ph.D. students from institutions across the world, including those based outside of the United States, are eligible for this fellowship.Project assignments are determined based on the fellow’s interest, experience and expertise, fellowship duration, and project need. Fellows will earn a $4000 per month stipend. The fellowship may additionally provide limited travel support to and from the fellowship. We welcome Ph.D. students with interest and experience in research at the interface of computation and society. If you are currently a F1 visa holder at another institution, you will need to receive permission from your home institution to participate in the fellowship program. More information about the 2022 Fellowship is available here.Please reach out to Hila Bernstein at CRCS@seas.harvard.edu with questions about either opportunity.
