The Social & Decision Analytics Division (SDAD) is seeking applications for multiple postdoctoral associates in statistics and social and behavioral sciences. SDAD is a leading laboratory in the Biocomplexity Institute & Initiative (BII) at the University of Virginia. BII performs world-class informatics research in life sciences, social sciences, and human health by integrating theory, modeling and simulation with computational and experimental science in a transdisciplinary, team science research environment.

SDAD combines expertise in statistics and social and behavioral sciences to develop evidence-based research and quantitative methods to inform policy decision-making and evaluation. The researchers at SDAD span many disciplines including statistics, economics, sociology, psychology, political science, policy, health IT, public health, program evaluation, and data science. 

SDAD researchers address complex social problems by leveraging the diversity of data flows available today including administrative and government records, surveys, social media, and sensors. Through team collaboration, the postdoctoral candidate is expected to develop the capacity to discover, repurpose and redirect these data flows to solve critical social problems. Computational complexity is at the heart of SDAD research and SDAD leverages all the research capability of BII, along with the High-Performance Computing infrastructure.

The positions will be offered at the rank of postdoctoral associate and will be located in BII's location in Arlington, VA.  Due to the current conditions as a result of COVID-19, this position has the potential to begin on a teleworking basis with the expectation to work onsite when it is deemed safe to do so.

To learn more about SDAD and BII, please visit us at biocomplexity.virginia.edu .  

Required Qualifications:

Applicants must be on track to receive a PhD in statistics, social and behavioral sciences, digital humanities or in a very closely related field by June of 2020 and must hold a PhD at the time of appointment.

Experience with statistical software systems such as R, programming, and databases.

Excellent communication skills, both oral and written, demonstrated through the development of publications and delivery of presentations.

Be motivated, enthusiastic and self-driven.

Ability to excel in a highly collaborative team science environment.

Preference will be given to those applicants with:

Experience using diverse sources of data, both traditional ones such as surveys, and non-traditional ones, such as administrative data and social media.
