Dear all,

We just got some funds for a one-year post-doctoral position in Social
Networks/Network Science. I attached the ad that we put out via ASA (pasted



The Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications (iCeNSA)
at the University of Notre Dame will have one postdoctoral fellowship
available beginning June 1, 2013 for a 12 month period.  The position is
supported by ARL NS-CTA project (

Candidates will be expected to work primarily on a collaborative project
dealing the dynamic co-evolution of personal traits and social ties. The
candidate will be expected to work on a novel data set containing trace
logs of minute-by-minute information on the communicative interactions of a
sample of 196 college Freshmen (collected via a monitoring infrastructure
linked to their personal smartphones) as well as periodic survey
information on their significant social contacts along with information on
attitudes, beliefs and practices.

We welcome applicants from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds (e.g.
sociology, political science, computer science, communication,
organizational behavior, and others). Candidates who can demonstrate
expertise in social network analysis or computational social science, and
can provide evidence of facility with the handling and analysis of
large-scale data sets will be given priority.

The postdoctoral researcher will be working with a team of sociologists and
computer scientists and engineers, will be affiliated with and have office
space in iCeNSA, and will be supervised by Professors Omar Lizardo.
 Researchers will have full access to iCeNSAís and the Sociology
Departmentís collective resources in computing, print/data libraries, and
administrative services.

Candidates must have completed all the requirements for the doctorate by
the time of the initial appointment.  Familiarity with standard network
analysis platforms (UCINET, R, SIENNA) is required and facility with
high-level programming languages (C++, Python, Matlab, Mathematica, etc),
as well as experience with simulation and data-mining techniques is a plus.

To apply, send a vita, a short description of your current and future work,
three letters of recommendation, and copies of your publications or papers
