Subject Postdoc (and student) positions in a study of the Incubator, and open source software success generally
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2020 14:58:23 GMT
Hello Incubator and Foundation people,

I reached out last year while planning an academic study of the Incubator.  Our proposal got
funded and we now have NSF support to do just that.  Most of you are in industry, but if you
happen to know anyone looking for a postdoc (or a student position) who would enjoy studying
you and your community, feel free to pass this along:
Postdoc (and student) positions in the study of open source software success

We are hiring for a project at University of California Davis on OSS structure, governance,
and success. These are NSF-funded positions of 2–5 years under an interdisciplinary team
spanning computer science,  computational social science, and policy analysis. The postdoc
position is seeking applications into November. The student positions may be filled this or
next year.

— Postdoctoral fellow:
— Computational social science student:
— Computer/data science student:

Project abstract:

Vladimir Filkov is a professor of Computer Science at University of California, Davis, where
he co-directs the DECAL lab. He has published more that 70 papers in empirical software engineering,
bioinformatics, network science, and social computing. His work has been funded by the US
NSF, USDA, US AFOSR, and US FS. Prof. Filkov is a member of ACM. He received a PhD from Stony
Brook University in 2002.

Seth Frey is a computational social scientist who studies computational approaches to self-governance
and the cognitive science of strategic behavior. He is a professor in Communication at UC
Davis, in the Computational Communication lab, and an affiliate of the Ostrom Workshop at
Indiana University. Previously he studied engineered social systems at Disney Research Zurich,
a part of Walt Disney Imagineering. He earned his Ph.D. in Cognitive Science and Informatics
at Indiana University. His work has been funded by the NSF, NASA, Creative Commons, the Mozilla
Foundation, and the JSPS.


Thank you.
