Three researchers needed for Knowledge Complexity project

Positions in Ireland, Germany & the Netherlands. Applications due 6 February 2017.

The researcher based at DANS (The Hague) will investigate Hidden Data and the Historical Record.

You will be part of the team which will drive forward the Knowledge Complexity (K-PLEX) project, challenging and informing current conceptualisations of the utility of ‘big data’ in a comparative, multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral fashion. In this context you will be investigating Hidden Data and the Historical Record using ethnographic and qualitative social science methodologies. Ideally you will have a background in humanities, social sciences or science & technology studies. Having a PhD is a positive but not required. The position is for 12 months.

2.  A researcher based at DANS (The Hague) will be investigating Hidden Data and the Historical Record.
