Applications are open for the Scholarly Communications Lab Postdoctoral Fellowship 2020/2021. They are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join their interdisciplinary team of researchers for a one-year research stay at the Scholarly Communications Lab (ScholCommLab) in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
This position is part of Sharing Health Research, a multi-year, SSHRC-funded project examining the online communication of health science. While this position may be particularly relevant to scholars with a background in science/health communication, digital journalism, risk/crisis communication, social media, or metascience, they welcome applicants from any field with an interest in this research topic.
This fellowship will offer the successful applicant an opportunity to collaborate with our team on a project of their own design focused on the public communication of scientific uncertainty and/or the online circulation of health-related preprints. Applicants are asked to submit one or two brief research proposals (half a page or less each) relating to this broader topic. These are meant to give us a sense of your research interests and methodological approach; they are not formal proposals, so there is no need to explain every detail or include a reference list.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received. All applications received by December 4, 2020 will be given full consideration, but applications will remain open until the position is filled.
The application package should include:
