We are currently recruiting for the following new positions:

Part-time Research Assistant in Complex Networks

Grade 6 (£27,629 to £32,958) Part Time (0.5 FTE)

The Oxford Internet Institute is a leading centre for research into individual, collective and institutional behaviour on the Internet. We are seeking applications from suitably qualified individuals for the position of part-time Research Assistant in Complex Networks.

The successful candidate will work closely with Drs Scott Hale, Jonathan Bright and Graham McNeill on a two year project funded by the Alan Turing Institute and the Lloyds Register Foundation entitled ‘TRANSNET: Forecasting and Understanding Transport Network Resilience and Anomalies with Data Science’. The aim of the project is to make use of anonymised mobile phone trace data to understand more about the flow of traffic around transport networks. The person appointed would assist with the research on the project by reviewing relevant literature, manipulating and analysing data, and writing research outputs in the form of both academic papers and short blog posts.

This is a part time role, but candidates must be able to dedicate a significant portion of their time to the project (ideally 50%, although other figures could be discussed). The individual appointed should have an interest in either network science or transport modelling, and should also have a background in a relevant discipline such as computer science, mathematics or physics (with other disciplines considered if a good connection can be demonstrated).

Based at the Oxford Internet Institute, this position is available immediately for two years in the first instance, with the possibility of renewal thereafter, funding permitting.
