The *postdoctoral research project* will investigate the dynamics of 
social networks from a multidisciplinary perspective. Details of the 
project will be developed with the successful candidate. It may involve 
the development and testing of social network theory, planning and 
conducting of network data collection, development and application of 
statistical methods and scientific software.

The *PhD project* will investigate the dynamics of social networks. It 
may involve development and discussion of social theory, planning and 
conducting of network data collection, development and application of 
statistical methods and development of scientific software. The 
project's research design should be elaborated by the student in the 
first year of the PhD program together with the research group. Students 
will receive training in multiple sub-disciplines of social networks 
research. Potential domains of substantive research include, but are not 
limited to, fundamental principles of network evolution, social 
influence, change and origins of group performance, communication 
dynamics, the emergence of (inter-)group conflict and segregation. The 
research project may also focus on the development of statistical models 
and software solutions for social network dynamics and their application 
to relevant research questions in the social sciences.

*We offer* an inspiring research environment at one of the world's top 
universities and close collaboration in a small, young research team 
that is part of a leading international network of social networks 
researchers. The positions include generous research funding and a 
competitive salary.
