As part of our new UK Economic and Social Research Council Doctoral Training Centre we have a number of MA/MSc/Phd studentships available for study across the social sciences at the University of Essex. In Sociology we're offering a number of training pathways including:
• Sociological Research
• Survey Methodology
• Longitudinal Social Research
We would especially welcome students interested in SNA who would make use of two unique telephone call record datasets collected by BT plc and licensed to the University of Essex for research purposes.
The first contains records of all outgoing calls made by a sample of 100,000 households across the UK in each of October and March in 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998 (c 8 million calls per month).
The second contains all outgoing and incoming calls (c. 1.7 million) made or received by a sample of c 400 households who were recruited to a 3 year longitudinal household panel survey in from 1999 to 2001 which included detailed media use and a week-long time-use diary (survey data available at http://www.esds.ac.uk/findingData/snDescription.asp?sn=4607).
