Dear colleagues,

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 
( is a Russell Group research-intensive UK 
university which regularly features in top-10 UK and top-100 global 
research rankings.

Further details can be found here:

The deadline for applications is 30 April, 2016.

Please forward to any relevant parties or mailing lists. Informal 
enquiries can be directed to me at [log in to unmask] .
