MINDS (Management in Networked and Digital Societies) department at Kozminski University, a leading research-driven business school in the heart of Europe, is seeking to fill one or more open rank positions in digital sociology.
The research areas of particular interest for the candidates include:
– Social Network Analysis (SNA),
– Large dataset analyses on primary data (self collected/scraped),
– Other quantitative studies of online communities,
– Qualitaitve studies of online communities and digital humanities,
– Science and Technology Studies (STS) related to the Internet.
We do not restrict the background of candidates to a particular field, as we believe that good research can be inspired and developed from different angles. However, we understand that the position may appeal particularly to people doing research in digital sociology, management, management science, data science, econometrics, computer science, information science, or digital humanities. *If you are fluent in Python, R, Klingon, or Quenya, feel free to mention it on your cv.*
MINDS Department is a highly informal, relatively young team of researchers. We follow participative decision-making principles and, if invited for an interview, you can expect being interviewed and evaluated by all members of the team, irrespective of the rank you are applying for.
We put great emphasis on internationalization and high academic standards. Over the last five years, MINDS Department faculty have gone on one-year research stays to Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cornell University, University of California Berkeley, or New York University, among others. We regularly publish in JCR-listed journals and publish books in the leading academic presses (e.g. Stanford University Press, MIT Press, Oxford University Press, Palgrave, Edward Elgar, Ashgate, Routledge).
Some of us are social movements activists (and e.g. serve on the Board of Trustees of Wikimedia Foundation or are engaged in the city movements), some are involved in the start-up culture mentoring, seed funds, developing own businesses, etc.), and we generally value bringing a diverse experience to the table.
We believe that research should be stellar solid and of high quality, but that it also should be fun. We offer flexibility, a lot of independence, and a friendly working culture.
The deadline for sending your application is *June, 1*.
