We are proud to announce the COALESCE Lab, a new research lab dedicated to studying processes of social cohesion, polarization, and exclusion from a social network perspective. The lab was founded to unite the members working on different projects about social networks and cohesion, polarization, and exclusion, to create synergies and collaboration. So far, we have offered three PhD, three postdoc positions, and six research assistant positions to early career scholars (see the announcement of job opportunities here in the news section). We are also happy to host academic visitors and PhD students, postdocs, and researchers who wish to join the lab with external grants if their research topics closely align with that of the lab. The lab is embedded within the GRAFO research group and the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology.
