Research topic: Accessing and Using Big Data to Advance Social Science Knowledge

We are looking for a full-time Researcher to work on the newly funded project, "Accessing and Using Big Data to Advance Social Science Knowledge".

Applicants should hold a PhD in information science, sociology, anthropology, political science, internet studies, or related disciplines, have a strong interest in the social aspects of online technologies and proven experience in qualitative and quantitative research.
