Internet Geographer


We're hiring: Quantitative Internet Geographer/Sociologist

We’re hiring a full-time researcher to work with Grant Blank, Bernie Hogan and myself at the Oxford Internet Institute (on a one-year contract in the first instance).

The successful candidate will be working on two projects: (1) Helping us to continue our work on the geographies of Wikipedia. i.e. modelling and mapping patterns in Wikipedia data (read more here or here); (2) Carrying out a new project on digital inequality in Britain. Here, the researcher will gather and analyse a range of Internet-related data in order to help us better understand local-scale geographies of digital engagement in the UK.

We think this will be quite an exciting position for someone with a background in statistics (and ideally GIS). More info and an application package is available at this link, but feel free to get in touch if you have any question about the job.
