JOBS@ECPR-METHODS: Three Postdocs in the Center for Digital Society and Data Studies, University of Arizona
The University of Arizona’s Center for Digital Society and Data Studies, in coordination with the School of Information and the School of Government and Public Policy, welcomes applications for three (3) postdoctoral fellows.
The post-docs will work on projects related to surveillance, privacy, technology, Big Data and politics. They will work with an inter-disciplinary group of faculty from the School of Information, School of Government, and School of Law.
It is a 10-month position that will begin in fall/winter 2016 and end in summer/fall 2017 (dates are somewhat flexible for the right candidate). The post-docs will work with faculty mentors and write scholarly research papers. Other projects could include opinion pieces for popular media outlets, and communication with stakeholders such as government officials and think tanks. They will also support proposal development for external grant opportunities that are aligned with these research areas.
The right candidates have strong methodological backgrounds and writing skills. We invite applicants from across the methodological spectrum, though priority will be given to those with expertise in statistical modeling, experiments in the lab or field, surveys, or ethnographic interviews.
The fellowships pay salaries of $40,000 – $50,000 for a ten-month term and include full benefits, including health care insurance. And let me assure you that this salary goes very far in Tucson — an exceptionally low-cost town!
