we are opening a postdoc position in network analysis and mining at Uppsala University, Sweden.

A goal of the project is to map the ethical practices of European hardware and software entrepreneurs, maker and hacker spaces, and community innovators.
The candidate will join a newly established research group on data science and engineering. The objective is to develop new methods to model, analyze and mine large complex networks and collaborate with other partners to reach the project’s goals. Topics of interest include multilayer networks and other types of attributed graphs.
