Current Opportunities

Qualitative Research Assistant

Summer Semester (Early May - Late August)

The Digital Democracies Lab is seeking a part-time research assistant to join our interdisciplinary research team on the project “From Hate to Agonism: Fostering Democratic Exchange Online.” This project consists of a variety of mixed methods studies that examine the issue of toxic and abusive language online and related issues of biased and ineffectual content moderation. Thus, this project asks how can AI be better deployed to foster democracy by integrating freedom of expression, commitments to human rights and multicultural participation in the protection against abuse.
