    • A master’s degree in engineering science or natural science or equivalent academic qualifications.
    • Strong background within machine learning and programming in Python as well as analysis and modeling of complex networks.
    • Fluent in English, both speaking and writing, and possess excellent communication skills.


    • Experience writing and publishing scientific papers is an advantage.


    • Is an experienced programmer, e.g. in Python.
    • Is unafraid to use APIs, scrape data, and has worked with “unstructured” data from the web.
    • Has experience working with network data, e.g. via NetworkX, graph-tool or similar.
    • Is used to working with machine learning methods.
    • Is interested in (and has experience with) data visualization.
    • Will work on analyses of large scale dynamic network data.
    • Will co-author scientific papers aimed at high-impact journals, participate in international conferences, and participate in advanced classes to improve their academic skillset
    • Is motivated to collaborate with researchers from both computational and social sciences in a truly interdisciplinary environment.
    • Is motivated to disseminate their research though popular talks and on social media, and to teach as part of the overall PhD education.

    About the Project

    • The project is financed by the DFF project “Learning the Structure and Dynamics of Complex Networks”.
    • The PhD project is part of a larger project which investigates how to develop computational tools for the analyses of large dynamic complex networks that can i) enable a human understanding of the structure of these complex systems and ii) forecast their future behaviors?
    • The project comprises an interdisciplinary team of researchers focusing on both machine learning and social network analysis.
    • Other project researchers are currently working on developing novel computational frameworks and scalable computational procedures for statistical dynamic network modeling using latent embeddings and efficient predictive procedures forecasting network dynamics.
    • The aim of this PhD is to work with these dynamic network analysis tools to analyze and understand phenomena within our digital society, through better prediction and anomaly detection. For example to model and visualize the large-scale dynamics of knowledge production, to forecast information propagation, and reveal filter bubbles.

    About Section for Cognitive Systems

    Modern life is embedded in intelligent systems, from the mind reading Internet to hearing aids listening in on our conversations. Advanced data analysis is increasingly a determinant for productivity and personal quality of life.

    The Section for Cognitive Systems research information processing in man and computer, with a particular focus on the signals they exchange – audio, imagery, behavior – and the opportunities these signals offer for modeling and prediction.

    Our research is based on statistical machine learning and signal processing, on quantitative analysis of digital media and text, on mobility and complex networks, and on cognitive psychology.
