Psychology Postdoc, University of Pennsylvania: Using Social Media to Understand Health and Well-Being

The World Well-Being Project at the University of Pennsylvania seeks a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to begin in June 2015.

Review of applications will begin March 1, 2015.

The fellow will be based out of the Positive Psychology Center and be mentored by Martin Seligman and Lyle Ungar. He or she will play a central role in managing and coordinating the research of the team for studying the effects of psychological processes, as manifest in language, on health and well-being. The fellow will work collaboratively with data scientists (e.g. from computer science) to investigate large social media datasets (i.e. billions of tweets), providing insights that further our understanding of health, well-being, and the psychological states of large populations. He or she will prepare manuscripts and give presentations in high impact psychology and multidisciplinary venues. The ideal candidate will have strong expertise in social science (social psychology, personality psychology, health psychology, sociology, or public health), quantitative or computational methods, writing, as well as experience running a large project or research group.

Applicants should send a cover letter (2 pages max), CV (with references listed), and 2 reprints/preprints to applications@wwbp.org with “POSTDOC-PSYCH” in subject line. Approximate start date is June 1, 2015 (subject to negotiation). The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE/Affirmative Action Employer.

This work is with the World Well-Being Project (WWBP), a collaboration between computer scientists and social scientists pioneering techniques for measuring physical and psychological well-being based on language in social media. We are shedding new light on psychosocial processes and developing unobtrusive well-being measures to supplement (and in part replace) expensive survey methods.
