"The Public Knowledge Project and the Canadian Institute for Studies in Publishing are soliciting applications for a data science fellowship (pre- or postdoctoral) to help build, and be an integral part of, an emerging research program on scholarly communication and social media.
Working under the direction of Dr. Juan Pablo Alperin, the position will offer the successful candidate the opportunity to explore a wide range of questions using a combination of computational techniques (including applied statistics, machine learning, network analysis, and natural language processing) and innovative methods (such as Twitter bot surveys) to investigate how knowledge is produced, disseminated, and used.
The position is ideally suited for (but not limited to) someone with an interest in scholarly communication and social media research, as it offers access to an unparalleled set of data and expertise to explore many facets of scholarly communication, particularly around issues of open access and the public’s use of scholarly work.
On top of having a proven record doing data-driven research, the ideal candidate will have the ability to lead multiple research projects, participate in external grant writing and publications efforts, as well as play a leadership role in small, but growing research team."
