Dear colleagues,

We are hiring a Researcher to work with us to study low-wage digital work
being carried out in Sub-Saharan Africa
<http://geonet.oii.ox.ac.uk/research/microwork/>. This is a 3-year position
to work with me and a team of social scientists on the Geonet
<http://geonet.oii.ox.ac.uk/> project.

The job description is below. Feel free to forward this to relevant people
and lists, and please get in touch if you would like to discuss any aspect
of the position.

Best,
Mark

*Researcher in ICTs, Geography and Development*
*OXFORD INTERNET INSTITUTE*

*Grade 7: £30,434 – £37,394 p.a.*

The Oxford Internet Institute is a leading centre for research into
individual, collective and institutional behaviour on the Internet. We are
looking for a full-time Researcher to work with Professor Mark Graham
<http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/people/?id=165> on the ERC-funded project Geonet
<http://geonet.oii.ox.ac.uk/>: Investigating the Changing Connectivities
and Potentials of Sub-Saharan Africa's Knowledge Economy. Combining
archival research, surveys, and in-depth interviews, this ambitious project
will critically assess the changing landscape of digital work in
Sub-Saharan Africa, and ask who benefits (and who doesn’t) from those
changes.

In this exciting role, the Researcher will carry out 9-12 months of
fieldwork among digital workers and organizations in Sub-Saharan Africa, as
well as working at OII’s premises in Oxford. The Researcher will also
contribute to the dissemination of the findings through peer-reviewed
academic papers, project reports, events, blogs and social media.

Candidates should have experience of social science research in Development
Studies, Geography, Sociology, Social Anthropology, Communications,
Organization Studies, Management or related disciplines, training and
practical experience in qualitative research methods.

Based primarily at the Oxford Internet Institute (with periods of
fieldwork), this position is available immediately for 3 years in the first
instance, with the possibility of renewal thereafter, funding permitting.
For qualified candidates, there may also be opportunities to teach course
modules on our ‘Social Science of the Internet’ MSc course.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. The application form
and further details, including a job description and selection criteria,
are available on Oxford University's recruitment website
<https://www.recruit.ox.ac.uk/pls/hrisliverecruit/erq_jobspec_version_4.jobspec?p_id=119288>
.

*The closing date for applications is 12:00 BST on Thursday 3 September
2015 and only applications received before then can be considered.* Interviews
for those short-listed are currently planned to take place in the week
commencing Monday 21 September 2015.
