Do your postdoc in one of the most dynamic and exciting cities and tech scenes in the world!

The Connected Experiences Laboratory is an AOL-sponsored research lab at Cornell Tech that represents a partnership between Cornell Tech, The Technion, the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute and AOL. The lab is hiring a postdoctoral researcher with strong builder/technical skills to join the lab.

The work will focus on the connected experiences theme: applying smart, dynamic sources of information to improve people’s interactions with content, and with each other. Our lab is a diverse team of faculty and students made up of HCI, social computing, systems, and computer vision researchers, amongst others.

The kinds of projects you might be working on include:

  • Augmented Reality: new AR applications that build on deep learning and computer vision capabilities to help people better perform tasks in various contexts
  • Smart communities: designing sensors and applications to strengthen and improve social community in urban and other communities.

What you need:

  • A PhD in computer science, information science, electrical engineering or related fields.
  • A desire to work in the most dynamic academic environment you will ever be part of.
  • Ability to survive and thrive in New York City: easy to do if you are open to new experiences that will happen every day.
  • Strong engineering/builder/hacker skills.
  • Willing, and even eager, to make your research work relevant to our partners, and the world.
  • Work closely with fantastic faculty in different fields and institutions (Cornell Tech faculty at the lab are Shiri Azenkot, Mor Naaman, Deborah Estrin and Serge Belongie).
