University of Surrey
School of Human Sciences, Department of Sociology
Centre for Research in Social Simulation
 
Research Fellow: Dynamics of Norm Innovation
 
Salary: up to GBP 28,850 per annum
 
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher to work on a EU
Framework 6 project on the emergence of norms in open source and similar
collaborative groups.
 
The project's aim is to understand how new conventions and norms emerge and
spread in social systems.  This will be done through historical, documentary
and ethnographic studies of groups that have developed norms for
non-commercial sharing of intellectual products (such as free/libre open
source software, academic science, personal photo sharing etc.) and through
the development of agent-based models that allow the specification of and
experimentation with  theories of norm emergence.  The project will last for
three years from 1 September 2006 and involves partners from five
universities in Italy, Germany, UK and Hungary.  The collection and analysis
of data on collaborative social groups will be the main responsibility of
the person appointed to this post.
 
The position requires a PhD in sociology or a related discipline, preferably
with an element of science and technology studies. Some knowledge of social
simulation and software development would be an advantage.
 
For informal discussions about the post, contact Professor Nigel Gilbert at
