Postdoctoral Associate, Department of Communication, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA. Deadline: 30 June 2020.
The Cornell Social Media Lab in the Department of Communication at Cornell University is seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Associate to participate in inter-university research at the intersection of instructional design, human-computer interaction, and educational technology. The postdoc will work on the development of technologies and content for educational interventions as a part of the Social Media TestDrive project, an interactive digital citizenship education tool developed in collaboration with Common Sense Education. As they seek to expand the Social Media TestDrive program to new populations, such as youth from low-income households and older adults, they are especially interested in someone who has interest and experience designing inclusive technologies and educational interventions for diverse populations of learners.
This position is a 1-year, full-time academic position beginning August 1, 2020 and renewable for a 2nd year contingent on available work, funding and performance. The Postdoctoral Associate will be part of an interdisciplinary project team of researchers and students in the Cornell Social Media Lab, the Cornell Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Information Science, Lehigh University College of Engineering and Applied Science, and external partners (e.g., Common Sense Education, New York State 4-H) who are working to advance social media literacy and digital education among youth. The ideal candidate will be proactive, resourceful, highly engaged, and passionate about digital learning and social media literacy. The Postdoctoral Associate will be based in the Cornell Social Media Lab and will have access to state-of-the-art research facilities and a collaborative community of scholars interested in social behaviors and information and communication technologies.
