Postdoctoral Scholar – Studying Rapid Response Misinformation Mitigation Efforts

The University of Washington Center for an Informed Public (CIP) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar to work on a National Science Foundation funded project titled “Building Rapid-Response Frameworks to Support Multi-Stakeholder Collaborations for Mitigating Online Disinformation”.  In collaboration with project PIs Drs. Kate Starbird, Emma Spiro, and Jevin West, the postdoctoral scholar will lead the iterative design and evaluation of a multi-stakeholder, data science collaboration working to mitigate online mis- and disinformation. The work will include participant observation of collaborative data analysis, interviews with diverse stakeholders, and iterative design work to improve the tools and broader socio-technical system that support this work.
