CSIRO offers PhD graduates an opportunity to launch their scientific careers through our Postdoctoral Fellowships. These fellowships provide experience that will enhance career prospects and facilitate the development of potential leaders for CSIRO.

In this role you will find an attractive balance between theoretical research in social media analytics and its application to the mining sector.  The role also provides a unique opportunity to work in the emerging research area of Social Media analytics, looking at a number of aspects, such as Trust in the Social Web.

You will be part of a supportive, vibrant, multidisciplinary team of world -leading researchers, and contribute your expertise in modelling information flow, attitudes and influence in social media to develop a theoretical model for information flow and influence in social media such as:

  • What features of social media data need to be considered to model trust and influence?  
  • Who are the influential people on what topic, and can we quantify their influence?
  • How does trust and influence change over time?

Through this Postdoctoral Fellowship you will gain expertise in the real-time assessment of trust depicted in social media, with strong skills in big data analytics, data modelling, and visualisation.
