The University of Washington is committed to being one of the top information schools in the world. As part of this effort, we seek outstanding individuals to join our exceptional, interdisciplinary faculty. These new colleagues join a faculty eager to participate in a broad-based, inclusive Information School with academic programs at the bachelors, masters, and doctoral levels. Faculty in the Information School teach across all programs.
The University of Washington Center for an Informed Public (CIP) invites applications for up to three CIP Postdoctoral Fellows who will be hired as Postdoctoral Scholars.
The UW CIP is a multidisciplinary institute with a core mission aiming to resist strategic misinformation, promote an informed society, and strengthen democratic discourse. Located at the University of Washington, a world-class research university in the Pacific Northwest, this new Center will lead programs that span research, education, policy and outreach.
CIP Fellows will join a growing team of faculty, students, community partners, and staff all actively involved in addressing the challenges of today’s complex and dynamic information environment. Postdoctoral Fellows will be supervised by one of the Center co-founders and/or faculty, and will work closely with the entire CIP community on research projects in service of the Center’s mission. These positions will begin as early as June 2021 and offer an initial two-year term with the possibility for a third-year renewal.
The UW CIP offers an exceptional opportunity to work closely with the Center’s co-founders and affiliate faculty, including sociologists, information scientists, computer scientists, and policy experts. Located in Seattle, the position also offers opportunities for engagement with scholars and industry leaders in the area. In addition to the pursuit of individual interests, Fellows will work collaboratively with affiliated faculty groups pursuing more narrowly specified projects. Fellows may pursue projects that utilize the CIP archive of large-scale social media data, as well as design and execute new data collection efforts that utilize existing research infrastructure.
