Subject: CDSDS research fellow positions in Tucson

Hi Barry!  I hope all is well with you and Bev! I just wanted to share this, as we have new opportunities down here with the Center. Our start and end dates/timing can be negotiated, and we'd love to hear from some of your former students or others you know who may be looking for a posting like the one you can see here:

The University of Arizona's (UA) Center for Digital Society and Data 
Studies, in coordination with faculty from UA's School of Information and 
School of Government and Public Policy (SGPP), welcomes applications for 
three (3) postdoctoral fellows beginning in Late October or Early 
November, 2016 and ending August, 2017 (these are 10-month positions). The 
fellows will work with Professors Catherine Brooks, Samara Klar, and Yotam 
Shmargad on a series of projects related to government surveillance, 
technology use in developing countries, and the role of Big Data in 
political elections. Working with faculty mentors, fellows will write 
scholarly research papers, produce opinion pieces for popular media 
outlets, and communicate with stakeholders such as government officials 
and think tanks. Fellows will also support proposal development for 
external grant opportunities that are aligned with these research areas. 
Fellows should 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 
goals of this project are to generate research findings that will inform 
policy, create new avenues for advocacy, and inform the broader public. ?

Please share and forward, we would very much appreciate that!

Sincerely, Catherine


Catherine F. Brooks, PhD, Director, Center for Digital Society and Data Studies (CDSDS)

Associate Director, Arizona's iSchool, School of Information at UA
