The Web and Internet Science (WAIS) Research Group at the University of 
Southampton is offering 3 fully-funded PhD studentships to begin in 
October 2013.

The PhD Studentships will be aligned with the EPSRC-funded collaborative 
interdisciplinary project SOCIAM: The Theory and Practice of Social 
Machines http://sociam.org/The Project's core objective is to establish 
the research, methods, tools, networks and collaborations to allow us to 
understand social machines (computational entities governed by both 
computational and social processes) in order that they can be designed 
and deployed by the full range of potential beneficiaries.  The work of 
the Project is highly integrative and students will be expected to take 
a holistic approach to their studies.  Potential research topics will 

  * Social computing
  * Crowdsourcing and human computation
  * Human-computer interfaces for social machines
  * Technologies for managing decentralization in social machines, in
    particular semantic technologies and Linked Data
  * Technologies for data and process mining and analytics such as
    social network analysis, social media management, and text mining
  * Applications of the above to areas such as healthcare, personal
    information management, citizen science, and public administration

Applications should be sent in by September 30, 2013.
