SNRG OPENING # 16013 Network Data Mining Software Developer

We seek a junior researcher/programmer to develop software that will be used to analyze the social networks data collected.  The project’s novel approach analyzes data that subjects voluntarily provide on /potential/ relationships between /others/ in their community, rather than asking them about their /own/ relationships.  (Developing the software to collect the social network data is a separate project: SNRG project #16012).

We seek a junior researcher/programmer to develop a tablet app that will be used to map out social networks, including those of remote communities.  The project’s novel approach synthesizes data that subjects voluntarily provide on /potential/ relationships between /others/ in their community, rather than asking them about their /own/ relationships.  (Developing the software to analyze the acquired data is a separate project: SNRG project #16013).

This project will be testing a hypothesis that streambed conductivity will vary between the same and multiple stream orders as a function of soil type of the contributing watershed.  The student will have the opportunity to perform both field and lab work. In the field, the student will help measure streambed conductivity and collect streambed samples at multiple streams within the Frenchman Creek watershed. In the lab, the student will conduct sieve analysis for multiple samples to determine the grain-size distribution, which will then be used to estimate streambed conductivity.
