Hi all,

We are announcing a four-year fully funded PhD position at Umeå University, Sweden. The position is affiliated with the research school ReSource, and the PhD will be working at DIGSUM's home department (<https://digsum.org>)

ReSource takes as its starting point the current “crisis of information,” characterised by, among other things, the proliferation of misinformation and conspiracy ideologies, the commercialisation of the public information infrastructure, the entry of AI technologies into more and more areas, and the increasing distrust of traditionally trusted institutions. Submitted research plans should be in any of these areas.

The deadline for applications is April 30th 2023. For more information on how to apply, visit <https://digsum.org/phd2>
