Subfield for search: Effects of Information/Communication Technology
We seek a scholar who investigates emerging inter-relationships between new forms of communication and social, economic or political outcomes at either the individual or aggregate level of analysis. Our preference is for a scholar with a cross-national research agenda.
Subfield for search: Cultural Production in the Digital Age
We seek an analyst of media and culture with exceptional interpretive skills who examines the relationship between media institutions and emerging forms of narrative, identity and community formation. Given the increasingly global nature of cultural production, we prefer a scholar who explores these issues in a transnational, comparative context.
Subfield for search: New Media and Ways of Thinking
We seek a scholar who investigates new forms of media and new ways of interacting. We prefer a scholar who utilizes cutting-edge theoretical perspectives and methodologies, for example the neuroscience or physiology of message processing, network analysis of complex social interactions, computational analysis of big data sets derived from ubiquitous sensing networks, or the role of media in verbal and nonverbal development.
