The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) appoints an Associate Professor of Computational Social Science in the Department of Methodology

Dr Ryan Hübert has been appointed as an Associate Professor of Computational Social Science in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

LSE is one of the foremost social science universities in the world, ranking fifth globally in the QS subject rankings 2023 and as the top London University in the Complete University Guide 2023.

An internationally recognised centre of excellence, the Department of Methodology is an interdisciplinary group which facilitates collaboration between departments and provides courses and methods of training to students from across the School, as well as producing one of the highest ratios of research income to faculty members at the LSE. The Department also offers two of its own master’s programmes in Social Research Methods and Applied Social Data Science, with around 30 students enrolled in each programme annually.

The post holder will contribute to the intellectual life of the School through conducting and publishing outstanding quality research, engaging in high quality teaching as instructed by the Head of Department, and participating in the School and wider Department activities.  

Society conducted an international search across the Higher Education sector in the UK, mainland Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia, identifying individuals who are active in both methodological and substantive computational research in social science, and have a track record of publishing research in top quality and well recognised international peer-reviewed outlets. 

Dr Ryan Hübert joins the LSE from the University of California, Davis, where was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science. Some of this work has been published or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics and the Economic Journal. 

Society would like to wish Dr Hübert all the best in his new role.
