Betreff: [OpenCon] Call for postdoctoral applications – Understanding the societal impact of research through social media

*Apologies for cross-posting. Original announcement here<http://goo.gl/JKnOyE>: http://goo.gl/JKnOyE*

The Canadian Institute for Studies in Publishing<http://publishing.sfu.ca/research/> is soliciting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship on a SSHRC-funded project entitled “Understanding the societal impact of research through social media.”

As the communication of research increasingly takes place on social media platforms, there is enormous potential to capture and analyze digital traces left by scholars. This offers, for the first time, the opportunity to study—using both quantitative and qualitative methods—the processes of knowledge dissemination and co-creation between academia and the public. Taking advantage of this opportunity, this project asks: What is the nature and extent of societal impact of research that can be observed through the public’s engagement with research on social media?

Led by Juan Pablo Alperin<http://alperin.ca/> (Simon Fraser University), the team brings together the two main poles of research on scholarly communication in Canada: the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) and the Canadian Institute for Studies in Publishing at Simon Fraser University, as well as the Canada Research Chair on the Transformations of Scholarly Communication at the Université de Montréal (Stefanie Haustein and Vincent Larivière). Collaborators also include the UQAM Research Chair on Digital Technologies Uses and Changes in Communication (Florence Millerand) and the Simon Fraser University School of Communication (Katherine Reilly).

Target start date: July 1st, 2016 (flexible)
Duration: one year, renewable
Salary: Commensurate with experience
Location: Simon Fraser University, Canada (Downtown Vancouver Campus)
Deadline for applications: Open until filled. For full consideration, apply by June 1st, 2016

Applicants should send a CV, cover letter, statement of research interest (1 page), as well as the names and contact information of 2 references to Dr. Juan Pablo Alperin (juan at alperin.ca<mailto:juan at alperin.ca>).
