Now Accepting Applications for Post-doctoral Associate positions in Computer Science, Data Science and Economics 2022-23

Center for Algorithm, Data and Market Design, Yale University

The Center for Algorithm, Data and Market Design is a cross-university center that seeks to support and further research at the intersection of computer science, data science and economics.

The Center is offering several Post-doctoral Associate positions designed for recent graduates of Ph.D. programs working at the intersection of Computer Science, Data Science and Economics. We are particularly interested in candidates with interest algorithms, blockchains and cryptocurrency, causal inference, game theory, learning, machine learning, market design, and networks, but all subjects at the intersection of these two scientific disciplines are invited to apply.

Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. prior to beginning as a Post-doctoral Associate and are expected to have a strong research and publication record. Resident Associates are expected to be present on the Yale campus three full days per week, contribute to research and publications, and participate in seminars and conferences at Yale. Associates are strongly urged to reside in the New Haven area.

The resident Postdoctoral Associates will be starting in the Fall of 2023 and last for one year; associates may apply for a second year of support. Associates receive a salary of USD 90,000 per year plus Yale benefits, a travel/research stipend of 10,000, and office space.

The Center also offers self-funded Resident Fellowships for individuals with their own sources of funding—for example, winners of Fulbright or other fellowship awards. The application requirements are identical. Please indicate the sources of funding in your application.

The Center is also offering (partially) funded sabbatical appointment for junior and senior researchers in the above areas of interest. The application requirements are identical. Please indicate the sources of funding and request for additional funding in your application.

• A cover letter indicating your interest in the Resident Fellowship
• CV
• Job Market Paper or at least one scholarly writing sample (in English)
• A research agenda (3 pages max)

February 28, 2023. A review of all applications will begin January 15, 2023, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2023 and appointment decisions will be made on a rolling basis.

If you have specific questions about the position for which you are applying, please contact Nicole Whitcher (nicole.whitcher@yale.edu). Applications for self-funded Resident Fellowships are accepted on a rolling basis without deadline and should be submitted to the same website.
