The Computational Health Informatics Laboratory (CHIL) in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo seeks highly qualified postdoctoral researchers with strong background and interest in building intelligent interactive systems. We are particularly interested in candidates who have interests and a strong track record in affective and/or social computing, although candidates across all areas will be considered. The positions are fully funded for one year, with expected renewals up to three years.
The successful candidates must have obtained a recent Ph.D. in computer science, cognitive science, computer engineering, mathematics, or a related field. Candidates with a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, medicine, psychology, or other clinical sciences will be considered if they have a demonstrated ability for technical (e.g. mathematical or computational) research, or if they fit exceptionally well within the scope of the projects below. Successful candidates will be expected to work closely with undergraduate, Master's and Ph.D. students. Publication of significant research in high quality venues will be a top priority for successful candidates. Start dates for the position are immediate. Successful candidates will receive a one-year contract, with expected extensions based on performance to (at least) current funding timelines of three years.
Applicants should email the following to Jesse Hoey (jhoey "at" cs.uwaterloo.ca):
Applications without all of elements above will not be considered. Applications will be considered as they are received, and the call will remain open until the positions are filled.
