The Oxford Internet Institute (OII) is the world’s leading centre for research into individual, collective and institutional behaviour on the internet. We are looking for a Research Fellow with experience applying innovative computational methods in researching and solving both theoretically and social significant problems.
This is an exciting opportunity for a researcher with a doctorate and postdoctoral experience in a relevant discipline in the social, behavioural, and computational sciences, or a related field of the humanities. However, candidates must have a research interest in social data science, computational social science or digital humanities, developing and/or applying computational methods in the pursuit of answers to the theoretically important questions asked in social science fields such as economics, political science, social psychology, law, geography, anthropology, sociology or development. We particularly welcome applicants with an interest in machine learning, natural language processing, or other computational approaches to research.
This position offers researchers of outstanding promise or distinction an opportunity to pursue advanced research and teaching within this field. The postholder will be a key part of the research community at the OII and will have full responsibility for managing their own programme of research, publishing in leading journals and representing the Department internationally.
Based in the heart of Oxford, this post is available immediately and is offered for 3 years in the first instance.
