Postdoctoral Position in Social Network Analysis using SIENA The Center for Developmental Research, Örebro University, Sweden announces a 2-year postdoctoral research position. The position is funded by a EUROCORES grant to a consortium led by Tom Snyders for analyses of network-behavioral models performed with the SIENA software program http://stat.gamma.rug.nl/siena.html. The datasets to be used involve adolescent friendship networks. The largest dataset is from a 5-wave study of all youths from ages 10 to 18 in one community (N ≈ 3100 at each wave). The youths reported their 3 most important peers (friends, romantic partners, or siblings) and their in-school and out-of-school peer groups. Also included are: problem behaviors such as delinquency and alcohol use; internalizing problems such as depression, shyness, and low self-esteem; many aspects of parent-youth relationships; personal characteristics such as psychopathic personality traits, impulsivity, fearlessness, anxiety, attention problems, hyperactivity; and more. Altogether, this longitudinal data set covers more than 4,500 individual items per subject. The successful candidate will have much freedom to develop his or her own research. In addition, he or she should be able to work together with others in the research group to conduct network analyses of different substantive issues. The working language at the Center (http://www.oru.se/templates/oruExtIntroPageLevel2____31149.aspx) is English, and there is much communication and cooperation among researchers. The working atmosphere is collegial and supportive. The salary is competitive: 32000 Swedish Crowns per month (3400 Euro or $4700 USD per month at current exchange rates). We can help with finding housing. The successful candidate should have excellent data analytic skills, excellent writing skills, and knowledge and interest in the area of social network analysis.
