POSITION DESCRIPTION

One postdoctoral position in the area of disinformation, finance, algorithmic credit scoring and community activism in minoritized communities is available at the University of California, Irvine. The position, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Convergence Accelerator, a new, interdisciplinary initiative that seeks to accelerate research into practice:

"The Convergence Accelerator's curriculum, consisting of human-centered design; user discovery; team science; early-stage prototyping; and pitch preparation is designed to provide our funded teams the tools to transition their solutions into practice," said Douglas Maughan, office head of the NSF Convergence Accelerator program. Phase one teams are expected to apply the curriculum; as well as focus on cross-cutting partnerships as most national-scale challenges cannot be solved with a single discipline and expertise."
