Subject: Research Fellows in Computational Social Science (43)  From: Quinn Dombrowski Subject: History Academic Technology Specialist position at Stanford (47) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-03-12 15:49:55+00:00 From: Fernando Nascimento Subject: Research Fellows in Computational Social Science From the job posting at https://careers.wesleyan.edu/postings/6761 : The Wesleyan Media Project (WMP) led by Dr. Erika Franklin Fowler, in collaboration with Wesleyan University's Quantitative Analysis Center (QAC), is seeking postdoctoral or pre-doctoral researchers in computational social science to join us at the forefront of advancing real-time analyses of political and health-related audiovisual and textual messages using computational methods. WMP leverages large-scale advertising and media messaging datasets applying theory and methods from political science, behavioral and communication science, network science, data science and machine learning. The fellowship positions are for a one-year appointment beginning July 1, 2019 with an option for an additional second year contingent upon performance. Individuals with a PhD, or those working towards a PhD, in computer science, data science, political science, in quantitative social science fields, or a cognate discipline including network science or machine learning are encouraged to apply. Preference for candidates with expertise and experience in topic modeling, AI, statistical natural language processing / text mining and analysis of audiovisual materials (including sound, images and video). The fellow will work closely with Dr. Fowler, WMP's Project Manager, and QAC faculty and staff on the analysis of textual, visual, and video-based political and health messages from a variety of sources (political/insurance TV ads, digital/social/online ads, television news, tweets, etc.) and will be involved in collaborative publications on an interdisciplinary program to analyze the volume, content, and effect of media messaging on television and online in electoral and health policy contexts. As a Fellow the successful candidate will engage in original research, test and evaluate alternative algorithms and have the opportunity to present and publish your work. The position will also contribute broadly both to computational analysis in the QAC and in the social sciences at Wesleyan by working with undergraduate students engaged in the lab's research projects and by offering courses in the Quantitative Analysis Center. The teaching load is one course per year in the first year and one course per semester in the second year. We strongly encourage applications from underrepresented minorities.

We anticipate that the position will begin in September 2019. The full job posting is available here: https://careersearch.stanford.edu/jobs/academic-technology-specialist-5692. For an on-the-ground perspective on what it looks like to work as an ATS at Stanford, please see this blog post: https://digitalhumanities.stanford.edu/history-ats. The Academic Technology Specialist (ATS) is a staff member of the Stanford University Libraries, closely collaborating with (and jointly funded by) the University's Department of History. The ATS's primary responsibilities are to promote, develop, and deploy innovative digital methods in support of research, pedagogy, and publication. The ideal candidate will have a record of innovation and creativity in making technology accessible, understandable, and appealing to an academic audience. The ATS must demonstrate a fundamental understanding of the ideas and practices that form the foundation of instruction and research in History. The History ATS is expected to bring the leadership and technical expertise necessary to envision and execute exceptional, innovative projects with faculty and graduate students in the Department of History and often as part of a team of SUL staff in providing such support. Within the Department of History this will involve innovations in pedagogy and research. The ATS should be able to guide students in pursuing digitally based research and methodologies, assist faculty and students in developing digital presentations, and guide faculty in understanding some of the possibilities for incorporating a digital component into their work. This is a job for a historian with technical expertise, enthusiasm for Digital History and the Digital Humanities more broadly, and a desire to mentor faculty and students to explore new methodologies and build things with us. The ATS will have an office in the History Department, engaging independently with faculty and students in that department, and reporting to a manager in the Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR). The ATS will work frequently with CIDR colleagues as well as the various Library Curators and Departments, communicating and coordinating with them in support of the research, teaching, and learning emanating from the History Dept. In particular, the ATS serves as a conduit for knowledge and leveraging of the Libraries' digital resources and infrastructures in the History Department, as well as advocating and fostering in the Libraries an appreciation for the needs of the Department and of the profession more broadly. If you have any questions about the position, please don't hesitate to email me at email@example.com .
