Postdoctoral Fellowship in Sociology

ERC Consolidator “Socsemics”, modeling of socio-semantic systems

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. Further information may be found in this document.
