Postdoctoral positions in Computational & Behavioral Social Sciences, LABSS-CNR, Rome

Posted: 9/28/2020 (Employment)

The Laboratory of Agent Based Simulation (LABSS-CNR, Rome) is opening a 2-year post-doc position investigating the role of social norms in the spread of misinformation about the Covid pandemic in online communities. Specifically, we are interested in understanding the extent to which social norms are acting as obstacles to consensus formation and their potential role as catalyst of behaviour change in social platforms (e.g., Twitter).  The study is part of a EU-funded research and will be done in collaboration with the Complex Multilayer Networks (CoMuNe) Research Unit of Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento. It will adopt a multidisciplinary approach that combines big data, online surveys,
experiments and social simulations. We are looking for highly motivated scholars with expertise in computational and behavioural social sciences, with knowledge of statistical analysis tools.
