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 

Happy to talk if you know someone.

• Network analytics on data from mobile phones, automobiles and transit 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

Note: If the selected candidate is a current Bank Group staff member with a 
Regular or Open-Ended appointment, s/he will retain his/her Regular or 
Open-Ended appointment. All others will be offered a 3 year term appointment.
