The aim is to contribute to the study of the dynamics of socio-semantic networks in digital public spaces, in particular the phenomena of confinement that are sometimes referred to as echo chambers, bubbles, balkanization or polarization. This work will take place within the framework of the "SOCSEMICS" ("Socio-Semantic Bubbles of Internet Communities") project, directed by Camille Roth and funded by the European Research Council from 2018 to 2023.


This post-doctoral fellowship aims to contribute to the representation of actor networks in conjunction with textual categories.
- Development of visualization interfaces for web social networks where actors (users) and concepts (statements, topics of interest) can be described in the same interface
- Evaluation of their effectiveness with regard to human-computer interaction
- Improvement of the state of the art in the field of hybrid data representation and interactive exploration of associated corpora
- Ideally, allow users to understand the nature of the bridges that can interconnect actor categories and textual categories and, at a higher level, their meta-structure in the context of multi-level visualizations.


Candidates should demonstrate experience in the development and evaluation of visualization interfaces (i.e., PhD related to the disciplines of information visualization), especially concerning relational and/or hybrid data: experience and skills demonstrating the ability to develop visualizations of either networks or textual categories are therefore expected.

Required skills:
- development and evaluation of data visualization interfaces
- research experience in human-computer interaction
- very good publication record and ability to innovate independently
- fluency in English (C1 level, written and spoken)

Desired skills:
- Programming skills directly relevant to interactive data processing and/or representation (D3.js, and Python or R, respectively)
- interdisciplinary research experience
- advanced English (C2 written and spoken), basic French (A2 written/oral) or German (A2 written/oral)

Work Context

The successful applicant will join the Computational Social Sciences team (http://cmb.huma-num. fr) of the Marc Bloch Center in Berlin, Germany (UMIFRE 14, a joint international unit of the CNRS and the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs), in the framework of the ERC SOCSEMICS project, which aims at developing in an integrated way a set of methods to describe the potential existence of "bubbles" in certain digital public spaces, by adopting a socio-semantic point of view, i.e. by considering jointly the interactional and informational containment of the users

Duration: 24 months, potentially extendable.

Additional Information

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a research statement in the context of SOCSEMICS (maximum three pages), a complete list of publications, and up to three selected publications.
