Postdoc Position in network analysis and mining, Sweden


The Department of Information Technology ( conducts education and research in Computer Science and Information Technology. We cover a wide range of issues, from construction of computer systems, via programming of computers, storage and handling of data, to information retrieval and methods for applying computers in a variety of contexts. The activities are grouped into five themes: Computer Systems, Computing Science, Scientific Computing, Systems & Control and Visual Information & Interaction. Each of these themes is in itself a major subject area, where we both conduct basic research and have projects with links to applications in for example Engineering, Biology, Medicine, Economy and Psychology. The broad scientific foundation is reflected in a large number of collaborations across academic disciplines as well as with industry and the public sector.

Description of the subject area:  The position is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 VIRT-EU project “Values and Ethics in Innovation for Responsible Technology in Europe.” The project includes six European research partners besides Uppsala University: IT University of Copenhagen (DK), London School of Economics (UK), Open Rights Group (UK), Politecnico di Torino (IT) and Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (DK). A goal of the project is to map the ethical practices of European hardware and software entrepreneurs, maker and hacker spaces, and community innovators.

The candidate will join a newly established research group on data science and engineering. The objective is to develop new methods to model, analyze and mine large complex networks and collaborate with other partners to reach the project’s goals. Topics of interest include multilayer networks and other types of attributed graphs.

The position is for two years, and may include teaching, at most 20%.

Qualifications: Candidates should have a Doctoral Degree (PhD or equivalent) in computer science, physics, mathematics or related areas relevant to the project topics at most three years before the application deadline (time for medical leave, parental leave, etc will be deducted from the three year period). Good programming skills are required and expertise in complex networks, data engineering and data mining is meriting. Good communication skills in English, both spoken and written, are required.

The application must include a statement (at most 2 pages) of the applicant’s motivation for applying for this position, including the candidate’s research interests. The application must also include a CV, degrees and grades (translated to English or Swedish), a copy of the PhD thesis (or a draft thereof), publications (and specific descriptions of the candidate’s own contributions), and other relevant documents (e.g. a list of reference persons).

Uppsala University aims for gender balance and diversity in all activities in order to achieve a higher quality at all levels of the organization. We therefore welcome applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality and life experience.
