The IIIA and the RMIT University offer an exciting PhD in Automated Monitoring of Online Communities with three different research topics:

Option 1 Automated extraction of Online Community Norms

Project: Contribute to the safety of emergent online communities by providing automated methods for identifying and preventing agents from contravening community guidelines (aka standards, rules). The project will investigate AI techniques in the area of autonomous multi agent systems such as AI Planning, Conversational agents, Goal based reasoning and Normative reasoning in agent societies.

Option 2 Detecting Violations of Online Community Norms

Project: Contribute to the safety of emergent online communities by providing automated methods for identifying and preventing agents from contravening community guidelines (aka standards, rules). The project will investigate AI techniques in the area of autonomous multi agent systems to Develop automated methods to derive “opposite actions” that constitute violations of community guidelines i.e., represent the behaviours of malicious agents.

Option 3 Detecting bullying behaviours in Online Communities

Project: Contribute to the safety of emergent online communities by providing automated methods for identifying and preventing agents from contravening community guidelines (aka standards, rules). The project will investigate AI techniques in the area of autonomous multi agent systems to investigate and develop techniques to predict “bullying” behaviours from conversation threads and generate counter strategies to prevent such behaviours in online communities.

We offer a 36-month position (extendable to up to 48 months in duly justified cases). The position will be based in Barcelona (Spain) and international travel is foreseen to Australia (up to 12 months). There is no probation period and there are 40 working hours per week. The remuneration, in line with the European Commission rules for Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant holders, will consist of a gross annual salary of est. 28.330 EUR (gross amount before employee’s taxes and contributions). Of this amount, the estimated net salary to be perceived by the Researcher is est. 1.800 EUR per month. 

The deadline is 30th November.

What is REDI?

REDI (RMIT European Doctoral Innovators) is a unique PhD training program that offers excellent conditions including international experience, top-class research discipline and transversal skills training as well as networking with academic and industry leaders from 60+ supporting partners. REDI’s 40+ researchers will be based with academic and industry leaders across 12 countries, and part of a multidisciplinary community. Co-funded by the European Union, REDI will create new research and enterprise links between Australia and Europe and the 60+ partners into the future.
