I was just being snarky because of the awesomely cyberpunk/tech-noir aesthetic match of this type of language:
"The Human and Social Dynamics group is devoted to understanding the interplay between individual-level behavior (e.g. how people make decisions about what music they like, which dates to go on, or which groups to join) and the social environment in which individual behavior necessarily plays itself out. In particular, we are interested in:
* Structure and evolution of social groups and networks
* Decision making, social influence, diffusion, and collective decisions"
Of course it would be a cool job, but working on direct mind control technology would be even cooler.
