The Mitchell Centre for Social Network Analysis is seeking to appoint a talented individual with knowledge in analysis of large dataset and database management, to work on a recently funded SIRF project on corporate governance and interlocking directorates.
The project aims to develop innovative methods for the study of large, multiple and longitudinal two mode networks of directors. It does so by investigating the relationship between the “old boys’ network” and the system of peer referral in the boards of directors of European firms listed on the stock exchange. The project is intended to use seed corn funding in order to prepare the ground for a larger interdisciplinary and international collaborative bid to obtain European funding.
We expect the candidate to apply and develop models for dynamic complex networks. This will entail managing and analysing a large database of European firms and their board of directors. Having good programming skills in SAS, Stata, R or equivalent language is necessary as is an interest in developing methods for large, dynamic and multilayer complex networks. Documented experience of building datasets and analysing quantitative data, such as social network data and/or corporate data, is desirable.
We are seeking candidates with a degree (preferably postgraduate degree) in computer science, informatics, maths, physics, statistics, neuroscience, or a related relevant field.
