I’ve been gathering “exclusive” tidbits about job market outcomes of algorithmic-economics-related people for a while, with the goal of publishing a Pulitzer-worthy blog post. As usual though, I was scooped by the Computational Complexity blog, where Lance adopted the far more reasonable crowdsourcing approach (I remain true to my old-school journalistic ideals). So, while I still have something new to report:
- Grant Schoenebeck: postdoc, Princeton → assistant professor, Michigan EECS
- Yaron Singer: postdoc, Google → assistant professor, Harvard SEAS
- Pingzhong Tang: postdoc, CMU → assistant professor, Tsinghua Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences
- Paul Valiant: postdoc, Berkeley → assistant professor, Brown CS
- Qiqi Yan: PhD student, Stanford → research scientist, Google
- Aviv Zohar: postdoc, MSR SVC → senior lecturer (assistant professor), Hebrew University CS
The most interesting thing about this list? It’s sorted by last name and starts with S! Further data mining also indicates that postdoc-ing is almost a prerequisite for faculty positions.
Feel free to use the comments to add vignettes that I missed (any representatives of the first three-quarters of the alphabet?).
