I am looking for two excellent PhD students and one Postdoctoral researcher for my project 'Data activism: The politics of big data according to civil society'.  The five-year project has been awarded a Starting Grant of the European Research Council, and will be based at the Department of Media Studies of the University of Amsterdam. (Please note that a second position for a Postdoctoral researcher will be advertised in two years time).

We offer a multidisciplinary, interactive and international research environment in a leading department (Communication and Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam currently ranks number 8 in the QS World Rankings).

Please note that international and non-EU applicants are welcome to apply, and that I will not review CVs at this stage.
