The IT University of Copenhagen is looking for 2 Phd candidates starting December 31st 2016. 

The positions are funded by the EU Horizon 2020 VIRT-EU project - “Values and Ethics in Innovation for Responsible Technology in Europe.” The project includes five European research partners besides ITU: London School of Economics (UK), Open Rights Group (UK), Uppsala University (SE), Politechnico di Torino (IT) and Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (DK). The goal of the project is to analyze and map the ethical practices of European hardware and software entrepreneurs, maker and hacker spaces, and community innovators in order to: 
- understand how IoT innovators enact ethics as they design future devices,
- generate a new framework for Privacy, Ethical and Social Impact Assessment (PESIA) 
- develop tools to support ethical reflection and self-assessment as part the design and development process for IoT technologies. 

Position number 2 has a SNA focus and the candidate will be expected to conduct social network analysis based on social media data and to collaborate with the parallel ethnographic research on IoT developers of technologies. The student will also collaborate closely with the Data Science and Engineering lab, currently being established at Uppsala University, Sweden. The objective of the PhD project is to develop new methods to map, model, analyse and mine large complex social media networks. 
Topics of interest include multilayer networks and other types of attributed graphs. 
 
The ideal candidate will have training in social science research methods and SNA practice and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research.
