The post-doctoral researcher will work with us on several projects examining online influence campaigns in Eastern Europe and Indo-Pacific region, as well as targeting

campaigns on attitudes and behavior.
If you know of any who would be interested in this position, please forward them the posting and feel free to refer them to me.
