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

Cornell Tech just launched Cx, the  Connected Experiences Laboratory, a new lab that represents a partnership between Cornell Tech, The Technion, the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute and AOL.

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in HCI to join the lab. The work will broadly focus on the connected experiences theme: creating, strengthening, and supporting relationships among close connections in the same family, neighborhood, or community.

Our lab is a diverse team of faculty and students made up of HCI, social computing, systems, and computer vision researchers. The kinds of projects you might be working on include:

  • Immersive recommendation systems: modeling the individual based on a rich set of historical data streams to more ‘insightfully’ match recommended content, product, or behavior; as well as new techniques for ranking available choices based on image and tag data
  • Future interfaces for social and beyond: new interfaces and applications for individuals and groups.
  • Local-social connectivity: how to connect people nearby to strengthen community and social support.

What you need:

  • A PhD in Human Computer Interaction 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, and we mean “new” like, every day.
  • Software development skills (not a master developer but you should be able to make some of your ideas dance)
  • Willing, and even eager, to make your research work relevant to our partners, and the world.
  • Work closely with fantastic faculty in HCI and beyond, including Shiri Azenkot, Mor Naaman, Deborah Estrin and Serge Belongie.

To apply, send the following to

  • Your CV
  • Names and emails of three or more references
  • A paragraph about why you’re interested in this position and what you’d like to work on

We highly encourage students from underrepresented groups to apply.
