        Subject: Social Network Analyst Research Associate needed

King's College London's Department of Digital Humanities is looking for a highly motivated and sophisticated individual to work on the Leverhulme funding project entitled 'The transformation of Gaelic Scotland in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries'. The project is a partnership between DDH and historians at the University of Glasgow, and aims to explore the application of Social Network Analysis (SNA) against a database of medieval Scottish people created by the People of Medieval Scotland (PoMS) project (http://www.poms.ac.uk). This contains thousands of individual interactions in different contexts and geographic locations and it is expected that SNA techniques when applied to this data will reveal changing patterns and intensities in social relationships.

The work will include:

·         Exploring different SNA methodologies to discover techniques that will facilitate an historical analysis of the people represented by the PoMS database.

·         Exploring how SNA approaches can be merged with geographical analysis techniques.

·         Investigating SNA approaches to the PoMS data and making this available to the public by extending PoMS's existing web application.

·         Writing an academic paper that describes the insights that were gained out of the above work.
The successful candidate will work with the project team and bring expertise on a range of SNA techniques to facilitate the exploration of this dataset. They will have a solid knowledge and experience in SNA approaches to structured data about persons and will be highly engaged in exploring its potential.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 28 April 2013. The post is a fixed term contract for 15 months, and the salary is within the Grade 6 scale, currently £31,331 to £37,382, per annum plus £2,323 per annum London Allowance.
