ARL Postdoctoral Position Available

Modified: February 12, 2015

The United States Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is seeking applications for one postdoctoral position to contribute to a program of research focused on assessment of team dynamics in complex networked systems. ARL is a basic and applied science and technology laboratory. This position is with the Network Science Team in the Cognitive Sciences Branch, Human Research and Engineering Directorate.

ARL is looking for a research associate to forward their goals of automatic, real-time measurement of individual, team, and organizational performance through advanced analytical methods, including dynamic social network analysis. Research opportunities include analysis of complex, real-world communications data (e.g., email, chat, telephone, face-to-face) to advance capabilities of assessing dynamic team states, processes, and outcomes in hierarchical organizations. Focus will be placed on applied transitions of performance-related algorithms in training and operational domains. Ideally, candidates should demonstrate expertise in computational social science, including areas such as social network analysis, exponential random graph models, graph theory, relational event analysis, text analytics, and/or statistical programming, with applications in the social science domain (e.g., psychology, sociology, anthropology).

The postdoctoral position is located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, which sits on the Chesapeake Bay, and is about 40 miles from Baltimore and 70 miles from Washington, D.C and Philadelphia, PA. This position is a one year appointment with opportunities to renew for up to 5 years. Salary is approximately $75,000 per year plus benefits. Relocation will be provided. In addition, up to $5,000 per year will be available for professional development and travel to meetings and conferences.
