Texifter is hiring new part-time coders (annotators) to join the CoderVerse. We are particularly looking for graduate students and postdoc scholars with a research or classwork focus on some element of criminology or criminal psychology.
We have a new, very large scale annotation project underway. It involves detecting the online signals of impending aggressive or violent behavior, such as a school shooting, domestic violence, sexual assault, or other problematic behaviors sometimes previewed in social media posts.
If you can work at least 10 hours a week and you are fluent in English idioms common in the United States, we pay $15/hour and provide free access to the DiscoverText software platform for your own research. If you work more than 15 hours over 5 days we will pay you $20/hour.
The work includes labeling (coding) data, writing memos, reviewing scholarly literature, preparing an annotated bibliography, working in a group, and sometimes writing collaborative essays, as in the case of our ongoing bot research:
