Betreff: [OpenCon] PhD position in Quantitative Science Studies

Dear OpenConers,

a new PhD is opening up at Leiden University's Centre for Science and Technology Studies. Here's the project description and the link to the call:

The objective of this project is to fundamentally improve our understanding of the ways in which science progresses and the way in which scientific knowledge accumulates. The progress of science is a key topic in sociology, history, and philosophy of science and one of considerable theoretical debate, but empirical insights are limited. Supported by computational advances and improved data access, in this project a large-scale data-driven approach will be taken in which scientific progress is studied based on the full text of scientific documents. In particular, the text surrounding the references in scientific documents will be analysed to get a detailed understanding of the way in which citing and cited documents relate to each other. This is expected to provide fundamental new insights into the way scientific knowledge accumulates.
