Oxford Internet Institute, 1 St Giles, Oxford<br>
Grade 7: £31,076 – £38,183 p.a. (pro rata for part-time)<br>
<br>
The Oxford Internet Institute is a leading centre for research into<br>
individual, collective and institutional behaviour on the Internet. We are<br>
looking for a Researcher to work with Professor Mark Graham on a two-year<br>
project to better understand the geographies of the Internet.<br>
<br>
Our existing research has uncovered highly uneven digital geographies: with<br>
some parts of the world far more like to produce, and be represented by,<br>
digital content than others.<br>
<br>
We seek to hire a Researcher to continue some of this research, to ask what<br>
has changed, and to ask new questions about digital inequalities at not<br>
just the global, but also the local scale. We plan to ask and answer<br>
questions such as: what are the contemporary geographies of the production<br>
and consumption of digital knowledge-based economic activities?; what are<br>
the geographies of digital representations (such as content in Wikipedia or<br>
Google)?; how likely is digital content to be locally or non-locally<br>
produced?; and do digital representations produce or reproduce social and<br>
economic inequalities and divisions in our urban environments. If we accept<br>
that our cities are made up of digital as well as physical raw materials –<br>
we need to better understand who owns, controls, shapes, can access, and<br>
can remake the digital layers of place.<br>
<br>
We plan on answering the above questions using methods from computational<br>
social science and GIS: scraping, mapping, and statistically analysing a<br>
diverse range of datasets. The position is suited to candidates who have<br>
recently completed a doctorate in Quantitative Geography, GIScience,<br>
Computer Science, Economics, Sociology or other relevant discipline (i.e.<br>
postdocs), but we also welcome applications from qualified individuals<br>
without a doctorate (e.g. candidates with industry experience). Programming<br>
skills, and experience with GIS are required. The successful candidate will<br>
ultimately work with Professor Graham to produce a full-length monograph on<br>
the topic.<br>
<br>
Based at the Oxford Internet Institute, this position is available<br>
immediately for 24 months in the first instance, with the possibility of<br>
renewal thereafter, funding permitting.<br>
<br>
This job advertisement is for a full-time researcher, but part-time<br>
applications of more than 22.5 hours a week will also be considered.<br>
