Research positions

Post-doctoral fellowship in Computational Social Science
ERC project "Socsemics"
We are opening one postdoctoral fellowship (18 months, possibly extendable) in computational social science for the hybrid modeling of socio-semantic dynamics in selected digital public spaces (including micro-blogs or discussion forums), especially in contexts featuring antagonistic stances (e.g., polarized topics). This more precisely means to propose models and representations of semantically-labeled groups of users at various levels and taking into account various types of links (interactions and affiliations).

Post-doctoral fellowship in Sociology
ERC project "Socsemics"
We are opening one postdoctoral fellowship (18 months, possibly extendable) in sociology to analyze the roles and positions of actors in selected digital public spaces (including micro-blogs or discussion forums), especially in contexts featuring antagonistic stances (e.g., polarized topics). While the main methodological framework of this position is qualitative (including textual analysis and interviews), fieldwork will to some extent rely on the exploitation of pre-processed data and of quantitative results (actor maps, text corpuses, etc.) made available by other team members. Some prior experience with mixed methods is thus desired.
