[ecrea] Job Opportunity in Participatory Design at M-ITI (Post-doc -preferred- or Junior Researcher)

Wed Aug 08 14:04:54 GMT 2018

The Grassroots Radio team, led by the Madeira Interactive Technologies
Institute (Madeira-ITI), seeks a researcher with an interest in the
participatory design of the interfaces for community governance of
networked radio stations, with a particular focus on commons-based forms of
governance and cooperative management. The hired person will be
collaborating with the international partners of the consortium on the
identified tasks, and will have the opportunity to produce original
collaborative research and joint publications with other members of the
network, as well as being afforded funding for travel to partner sites, and
for attending conferences and workshops. While the emphasis of this work is
on the participatory design of the governance of radio stations, a
candidate with strong interdisciplinary skills would be able to learn many
of the domain-specific approaches on the job.

Grassroots Radio is creating a game-changing network of inclusive digital
platforms for citizen engagement, community deliberation, and the free flow
of information within, into, and out of geographic communities by piloting
solutions for connected, inexpensive, community owned and operated radio
across Europe. Building on the success of the existing RootIO platform ( – with its proven commons-oriented technology and catalytic
capacities for promoting collective awareness and action, participatory
innovation, community resilience, and media pluralism – we are deploying
and testing a network of low-power community radio stations in Ireland,
Portugal, and Romania as part of the Horizon 2020 Grassroot Wavelengths
project (nº 780890), funded by the European Commission.

The initial contract will be for a period of 12 months, for potential
renewable up to a maximum of 24 months. More detailed info on the job and
