I would add that I have worked with the team around Margaret Hellard
(which includes Campbell Aitken).  Some of you may remember them from
the last Sunbelt.  They have a very friendly group of colleagues and are
doing brilliant work.

1. PhD research studentship in modeling social and cultural dynamics

A research scholarship or studentship is available for a student 
interested in pursuing a PhD at the interface of the social science 
of networks, social psychology and agent-based modeling.

We are seeking a student with an Honours degree in Science or Social 
Science, preferably with a strong background in either programming or 
mathematics/statistics. The project will centre on simulation studies 
to examine the interdependence of social network structure and the 
global dynamics of public attitudes, by examining the behavior of a 
multi-agent system of artificial social cognitive agents connected 
through social network structures. The project will explore global 
consequences of information transmission such as the distribution and 
change dynamics of opinions about social objects in the artificial 
society. The intent is to combine sophisticated construals of social 
network structure with current empirically-based knowledge about 
social cognitive processes involved in transmission of cultural
information.

The student would work with research teams from the School of 
Behavioral Science at the University of Melbourne, including the 
Social Networks Laboratory and the Social Action Laboratory.  The 
student's supervisory panel will include Professor Pip Pattison and 
Associate Professor Garry Robins, who have expertise in statistical 
models for social networks, and Associate Professor Yoshi Kashima, 
who has expertise in social cognition, cultural psychology, and the 
transmission of stereotype information.

The studentship is available as a full scholarship (annual living 
allowance of $18,660) OR as a supplement to the living allowance of 
an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or Melbourne Research 
scholarship (MRS); the value of supplement is $10,000 per annum.  In 
each case the living allowance would be available for three years 
with an extension of 6 months possible.

Enquiries should be directed to: Dr Garry Robins
([log in to unmask]).

Expressions of interest should be received by: January 12, 2007.




2. PhD research studentship in modeling network-based disease
transmission

A research studentship is available for a student interested in 
pursuing a PhD at the interface of mathematics and statistics, the 
social science of networks, and infectious diseases and public 
health.  We are seeking a student with an Honours degree in Science 
or Social Science, preferably with a strong background in mathematics 
and statistics and an interest in pursuing research in the area of 
statistical modeling of social networks and its application to the 
transmission of infectious diseases.  The student would work within a 
multi-disciplinary research team involving researchers from the 
Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health Research, Macfarlane 
Burnet Institute for Medical Research and Public Health and the 
Social Networks Laboratory, School of Behavioural Science, University 
of Melbourne.

The studentship is available as a full scholarship (annual living 
allowance of $18,660) OR as a supplement to the living allowance of 
an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) or Melbourne Research 
scholarship (MRS); the value of the supplement is $10,000 per 
annum.  In each case the living allowance would be available for 
three years with an extension of 6 months possible.

Enquiries should be directed to: Professor Pip Pattison 
([log in to unmask]) or Dr Margaret Hellard ([log in to unmask]).

Expressions of interest should be received by January 12, 2007.  The 
successful applicant will be strongly encouraged to also apply for an 
NHMRC scholarship (closing date: mid-2007).
