Dear colleagues,

We are hiring a PhD student to work on statistical models for relational 
event data. Please feel free to forward this call to talented students!

----

The *Social Networks Lab at ETH Zürich* is offering a three-year fully 
funded *PhD position studying «statistical models for relational event 
data»*, starting September 2018. Researchers within the Social Networks 
Lab investigate the structure and dynamics of social networks by 
combining research approaches from the social sciences, statistics, and 
computer science with the aim of contributing to the social science 
literature. The project is embedded in my research group and will be 
co-supervised by Dr. Viviana Amati.

The PhD project will develop new *statistical models for relational 
event data* (time-stamped data of interpersonal interaction or 
individual behavior) and will demonstrate how those can be used to study 
traditional social science research questions on a larger scale. The 
models will be implemented in a scientific software package. The 
successful candidate will develop the detailed scope of the project 
within the first year of the PhD in collaboration with a team of 
supervisors and collaborators.

The deadline for applications is *30 **May.*

by e-mail.

Best regards,
Christoph Stadtfeld
