We are seeking a PhD student to add to our team of researchers working
on the following UK ESRC funded project "Measuring information exposure
in dynamic and dependent networks"
EXPONet will model online content exposure as a complex network
incorporating both social and traditional media sources. Whether one is
consuming the news online or producing/consuming information on social
media, the fundamental dynamic of consuming political and other news
involves formation of ties between users and media content by a variety
of means (e.g. browsing, social sharing, search). Online media exposure
is then a process of network formation that links sources and consumers
of content via their interactions, requiring a network perspective for
its proper understanding.
The fully funded studentship will undertake a project within the ExpoNet
objectives but has substantial freedom within this remit to follow the
student's own interests. The University of Exeter
(http://www.exeter.ac.uk/) is a Russell Group research-intensive UK
university which regularly features in top-10 UK and top-100 global
