The successful candidate will be invited to participate in several university research centers, such as the Internet Governance Lab, the Center for Media and Social Impact, and the law school’s programs on Information Justice and Intellectual Property and on Tech, Law, and Security.

The position has an administrative appointment in the Communication Studies division at SOC, which houses our competitive doctoral program, our MA in Media, Technology and Democracy, and a research-focused undergraduate program.
