The Mobilize Center at Stanford University
(http://mobilize.stanford.edu),  a newly established National Institutes
of Health (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Center for Excellence, has
openings for several Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellows.

The proliferation of devices monitoring human activity, including mobile
phones and an ever-growing array of wearable sensors, is generating
unprecedented quantities of data describing human movement, behaviors,
and health. Mobility data is also being collected daily by hundreds of
clinical centers and research laboratories around the world. Gaining
insight from these massive and complex datasets will require novel
algorithms for large-scale data processing and machine learning.

The Mobilize Center is bringing together leading data science and
biomedical researchers to integrate and understand these data using
innovative data science techniques, combined with state-of-the-art
biomechanical modeling. The Center is led by Scott Delp, along with
co-investigators Trevor Hastie, Jure Leskovec, Christopher Re, Stephen
Boyd, Jennifer Widom, Abby King, Russ Altman, and Margot Gerritsen.
Current driving biomedical problems include weight management through
the promotion of physical activity, running injuries, osteoarthritis,
and cerebral palsy.

We are searching for outstanding creative individuals to develop and
apply novel data science tools to study human mobility and health. The
ideal candidate will have strong research skills in data science and
biomechanics and experience developing computational methods. Prior
experience with wearable sensors, statistical learning, optimization,
game theory, software development, medical informatics and other data
science methods is desirable.

Interested applicants should:
(1) Send a letter indicating their interest and experience, a CV, and
copies of two representative publications via e-mail to

(2) Complete the short online form at
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Rrc7JurC4HfA-AiD7iJqXwdmWHvm3jzKHrVeO9BjLcU/viewform
(3) Arrange for two letters of reference to be sent to
[log in to unmask]  within two weeks of submitting (1) and (2).

We encourage applicants to also send links to software or simulations
that they have developed. The review of applications will begin
immediately and continue until the positions are filled.

Stanford University is an affirmative action and equal opportunity
employer, committed to increasing the diversity of its workforce. It
welcomes applications from women, members of minority groups, veterans,
persons with disabilities, and others who would bring additional
dimensions to the university's research and teaching mission.
