Inviting Postdoctoral Scholars to submit applications for an NSF-funded position that will study how professional community organizers use data to pursue grassroots-led projects and influence data-intensive technologies. This position will support long-term engagement and programming with community partners guided by principles of research justice. Duties will chiefly involve recruiting self-described, professional community organizers for compensated, interview-based research.

The Postdoctoral Scholar will additionally (1) help train graduate student researchers and lead coding and data analysis, (2) administer a series of meetings that explore the harms of datafication in minoritized communities, and (3) learn from our partners as they advocate on behalf of communities frequently ignored or actively harmed by technological innovation. Competitive candidates will have strong writing skills, qualitative research and/or codebook experience.
