Join the CSSI Community

The Kellogg Center for Science of Science & Innovation offers several opportunities to be a part of this expanding community. Our priority is to attract technically strong researchers who are also interested in asking bold, new questions with data.

Researcher Opportunities

We are always looking for talented Ph.D. students who are interested in exploring this exciting new discipline. If you are currently a Ph.D. student and would like to join our network of researchers, please email us with your current field of study and areas of interest.

Postdoctoral Fellow

The Center for Science of Science and Innovation at the Kellogg School of Management is seeking exceptional candidates for full-time, academic research positions at the rank of Postdoctoral Fellow. We have a broadly defined research agenda, exploring diverse topics related to Science of Science, Innovation, AI, Computational Social Science, and Network Science.

The initial term is one year with the possibility for renewal. Fall 2020 has been the target start date, though considering disruptions by COVID, we’re also prepared to be flexible. 

Candidates will work on topics related to Computational Social Science, Science of Science, Innovation, Machine Learning/AI, and Network Science. The research will be conducted with Prof. Dashun Wang at the Center for Science of Science and Innovation https://kell.gg/cssi, an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment with unique opportunities for working closely with excellent students and faculty across Kellogg and Northwestern.

Our priority is to attract technically strong researchers who are also interested in asking bold, new questions with data. Candidates must have a proven record of publications in top-tier conferences and journals and need to have completed projects that demonstrate a proven ability to work with data. The applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. If you have any time constraint, please feel free to communicate that to us at cssi@kellogg.northwestern.edu

Applications should be submitted on-line: https://facultyrecruiting.northwestern.edu/apply/OTAx
