Postdoctoral Position at Arizona State University (interdisciplinary applications of information dynamics; application date: March 15, 2016)
This position will use information-theoretic methods to better understand spatiotemporal patterns in data taken from social-insect colonies making group-level decisions. We are particularly interested in the use of information dynamics and active information storage (e.g., transfer entropy) to visualize centers of computation, information acquisition, and information storage across colonies of ants in two-choice decision tasks. However, this project is very transdisciplinary, cutting across computational modeling, complex adaptive systems, networks, dynamical systems, behavioral ecology, and information theory; consequently, we are very interested in the unique contributions of a motivated postdoc. This NSF-funded project is focused on fundamental science of collective decision making in natural systems. However, there are broader impacts of this work that stretch from novel architectures for distributed information processing in engineered systems to understanding the emergence of information processing at the origins of life itself.
