Hi all,

I am hiring a part-time Research Assistant to carry out research into
the geography and social structure of Wikipedia in the Middle East and
North Africa through large-scale data analysis. The position will
involve the analysis of the corpus of Wikipedia text, user-pages and
history files and the use of statistical techniques to explain spatial
and social patterns. Our research question focuses on patterns of
representation on Wikipedia as well as an articulation of patterns of
conflict and barriers to participation.

The successful candidate will manage and perform queries on a large
database, statistically and geographically analyse and visualise
results, explore alternate methods to answer the project's core
research questions, and assist in writing academic papers and
technical reports.

Essential attributes:
 A graduate degree or postgraduate training in quantitative social
science. Preference will be given to candidates in geography or
sociology;
 Experience with statistical modeling, particularly regression analysis;
 Experience working with databases and large datasets (i.e. N > 1 million);
 Familiarity with GIS software;
 Familiarity with social network analysis software;
 Ability to work autonomously and be creative in the ways that you
answer research questions.

Desirable attributes:
 Experience visualising statistical, social networks and geographic data;
 Experience with text mining;
 Experience writing for an academic audience (i.e. journal articles
and book chapters);
 Interest in and enthusiasm for the work of the OII;
 Experience working with publicly available secondary datasets.

The deadline for applications is June 1. Please get in touch if you
have any questions.
