The Human Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie
Mellon University invites applications for a postdoctoral
fellow position to conduct research at the intersection
of social computing, mobility, and health care.

More specifically, we are looking for scientists to work
on a research project on using data from smartphones and
social networks to predict mental health characteristics
of individuals, in particular depression. The research
will involve working with a team of researchers in
developing software to capture sensor and communication
data, developing and running user studies for collecting
the data, and creating models for predicting different
mental health characteristics.

The research will be conducted under the supervision of
Professors Jason Hong and John Zimmerman. The postdoc will
be for one year and renewable for at least one extra year.
Candidates are encouraged to explore research ideas on top
of and beyond the project description. The position provides
significant opportunities for professional development.

Applicants should have a strong background and interest in
some combination of mobile computing, social computing,
health informatics, human-computer interaction, machine
learning, data mining, and statistical data analysis.

To apply, please send a cover letter, a CV and a list of
references in PDF format to [log in to unmask] Additional
material will be requested as needed.

Carnegie Mellon is an affirmative action/equal opportunity
employer and we invite and encourage applications from
women and minorities.
