  Friends –

  I hope all is well!

  Please see the job ad below (note the tight deadline). I wonder whether
  this is of interest to some of your students or others from your networks.

  I think this is going to be an exciting job – the Bank is pouring
  significant resources into this work, and the group is pretty empowered to
  really take this agenda and run with it. I would love to see them recruit
  someone top-notch. The one caveat is that they will be looking for someone
  quite a bit of work experience.

  Happy to talk if you know someone.

  systems for better urban and transport planning; for monitoring the
  movement of people during and after disasters.

  • Machine learning and analysis of satellite imagery to estimate poverty,
  and to monitor crop yields, road conditions, and urbanization patterns

  • Topic modeling, natural language processing, and network analysis on
  social and online information to understand sentiment, patterns, network
  structure, behavior patterns to inform policy and program design
