Postdoctoral Research Position – Collective Behavior and Information Transfer in Human Crowds

Posted by on Mar 25 2010 in Available positions, EventsNo comment


Starting Date: Ideally as soon as possible

A two year postdoctoral position is available in collective behavior of human crowds in the CouzinLab at Princeton University. This is part of an ongoing project for the UK Home Office in collaboration with Oxford Risk, a University of Oxford spinout company, and will involve analysis of kinematic data sets from pedestrian crowds as well as the development and validation of individual-based models of the motion and behavior of people in urban environments. Strong programming skills are essential and comprehension of computer vision techniques would be beneficial (although expert knowledge in this area is not required).

You will be integrated within a highly multi-disciplinary research environment and should be enthusiastic, motivated with good interpersonal skills. The position will be based in Princeton but you must be able to travel to the UK periodically to undertake experiments and for meetings with the Oxford Risk team.

To apply, please send a CV and a statement of research interests to Prof. Iain D. Couzin at with "Crowds" in the subject line.
