Applications are invited for a full PhD Scholarship starting in January 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to undertake research in the areas of social media mining, natural language processing and computational social science, with a focus on tackling online harms such as disinformation and hate speech in social media. The project aims to develop novel methods that assist with the detection of deceitful and harmful content online, especially where they can have a damaging effect on individuals or society at large, or an impact offline leading to crime. The PhD will be supervised by Dr. Arkaitz Zubiaga (http://www.zubiaga.org/).

The PhD will be based in the QMUL Cognitive Science (CogSci) Research Group (http://cogsci.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/), an interdisciplinary group with strong publication record and high international impact, which is part of the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science ( http://www.eecs.qmul.ac.uk), Queen Mary University of London, UK.
