Post-Doctoral Associates

The Command, Control and Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA) at Rutgers University invites applications for postdoctoral associates for positions starting on or after January 1, 2015. CCICADA is a U.S. Department of Homeland Security University Center of Excellence in research and education. We conduct research in topics such as advanced data analysis, optimization, machine learning and risk management related to natural hazards, infrastructure protection, and public safety.

Examples of CCICADA projects include risk assessment of regional flooding; optimal allocation of US Coast Guard boat resources; studies of alerts and warnings using social media; security planning and assessment for sports venues; and algorithms for container inspection in ports. CCICADA has completed more than 250 research studies since its founding, and we encourage our post-docs to be involved in a variety of our projects.

The appointment entails work with internationally recognized faculty in data science and with post-docs and graduate students at the Rutgers Piscataway campus.

Eligibility: Applicants should be recent PhDs with interest in fields such as operations research, industrial engineering, computer science, discrete mathematics, statistics or related areas. Position is project-oriented with focus on methods such as mathematical/computer modeling, combinatorial optimization, advanced data analysis, and discrete event simulation. Applicants will be selected on the basis of academic achievement and promise, with preference for US citizens. The position is for one year, with renewal contingent on funding and performance.
