  • Postdoctoral researcher in Computational Social Science

    Deadline: Thursday 3 December 2020

    Are you a passionate and committed researcher and well versed in cutting-edge computational social science approaches? Would you like to be involved in frontier research on large-scale network analysis and official register data and work with highly qualified researchers in an interdisciplinary academic environment? Effective immediately, we are seeking a postdoc in Computational Social Science. You will be part of the POPNET platform, and your position is hosted by the Faculty of Humanities. You will do your research under the aegis of the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC). The ILLC is a renowned research institute at the University of Amsterdam, in which researchers from the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Science collaborate.

    As an ideal candidate for this position, you find yourself at home in the international computational social science research community. You have a well-developed skillset in scientific programming and an affinity with network analysis in particular. You are able to work with very large data and have the creativity and curiosity to develop new network measures and statistics. You are keenly aware of the ethical issues related to using large scale social register data and want to contribute to a responsible scholarly practice on big data analytics.

  • Postdoctoral Researcher in Mathematical Logic

    Deadline: Tuesday 1 December 2020
