PhD position at ETH Zürich; statistical models for relational event data

last modified May 22, 2018 02:31 PM

The Social Networks Lab at ETH Zürich is offering a three-year fully funded PhD position studying «statistical models for relational event data», starting September 2018. Researchers within the Social Networks Lab investigate the structure and dynamics of social networks by combining research approaches from the social sciences, statistics, and computer science with the aim of contributing to the social science literature. The project is embedded in my research group and will be co-supervised by Dr. Viviana Amati.

The PhD project will develop new statistical models for relational event data (time-stamped data of interpersonal interaction or individual behavior) and will demonstrate how those can be used to study traditional social science research questions on a larger scale. The models will be implemented in a scientific software package. The successful candidate will develop the detailed scope of the project within the first year of the PhD in collaboration with a team of supervisors and collaborators.

The deadline for applications is 30 May.
