The Computational Open Data Exploration and Design (CODED) lab in the Department of Information Science at Drexel University’s College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) is looking for Ph.D. students to fill two Research Assistantships.

The CODED lab’s research mission in data science focuses on social information and language processing, with the perspective that technological systems that facilitate public communication and knowledge sharing can be designed with open data for meta-purposes that benefit both participants and organizations. Outstanding candidates will have technical skills and may come from a broad range of backgrounds (including informatics, mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering, linguistics, and the social sciences); will pursue a data science-focused Ph.D. at CCI under the advisement of Dr. Jake Ryland Williams, and may receive special consideration for a history of self-motivated pursuits in data-centered development, analysis, design, or curation.

For more information about the positions, research projects, and opportunities for study, please send all inquiries via email to Jake[dot]Williams[at]drexel[dot]edu.
