We seek applicants with a strong record of interdisciplinary work in
developing and applying concepts and methods from science, technology,
computing, engineering and applied mathematics in the service of urban
communities across the globe. Successful applicants are expected to
contribute to both methods and foundational knowledge in their
core disciplines, as well as to novel data- and technology-driven
applications for, e.g., improving the quality of city services; optimizing
resource allocation and decision-making by local governments; securing
smart urban infrastructure; addressing challenging urban problems including
crime, environmental pollution and public health issues; and empowering
urban citizens to better their communities and improve their quality of
life. We encourage applications in a wide range of areas of specialization,
including but not limited to:

   - Urban machine learning, data science, and AI
   - Data management, curation, integration, visualization, and analytics
   - Smart mobility and emerging transportation safety solutions
   - Cyber-security and privacy in smart cities and critical infrastructure
   - Urban Internet of Things
   - Improving city operations and governance through data and technology
   - Smart and connected health
   - Assistive devices for navigating urban environments

as well as the intersection between these and other relevant areas of
research in the smart cities and urban science domains. Successful
applicants will be expected to both start new projects and collaborations,
as well as engage in existing projects with sponsoring faculty.

Smart Cities Postdoctoral Associates are full-time, non-tenured positions
for two years, with annual appointments renewed based on satisfactory
performance. The positions will be based at CUSP’s state of the art
facility in Brooklyn. The starting salary is $75k/year with
competitive benefits, plus funds for travel and professional development.
The tentative start date is September 1, 2020.

*Responsibilities:* Conduct groundbreaking research both independently and
as part of interdisciplinary teams; contribute to existing projects under
the supervision of sponsoring faculty, and start new projects and research
collaborations as appropriate; participate in the development of funded
research proposals; build bridges between CUSP and other Tandon/NYU labs,
groups, and centers; publish in top venues in smart cities, urban
science, and/or their fields of specialization; contribute to scholarly
life at CUSP through the organization of seminars, mentoring of students
and other service; and teach (or co-teach) one course per academic year.

Doctoral degree in a relevant field, and an active agenda of research
and publication with a strong focus on smart cities, urban science, or
other areas with potential for direct application to cities. A record of
transitioning research into practice, particularly as applied to critical
urban challenges, is desirable.
