[ecrea] Post-doctoral research jobs at the Reuters Institute, U of Oxford

Tue Aug 28 18:56:55 GMT 2018

Post-doctoral research positions in digital news and journalism at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford

The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford is seeking to appoint up to three new post-doctoral Research Fellows to work for one or two years (depending on what works best for the strongest candidates) as part of a larger project aimed at analysing media developments in a sample of more than thirty countries (most of them in Europe), with a particular emphasis on digital media, news, and politics.

We are particularly interested in new colleagues who can help us develop our understanding of one of the following key areas:

·  Audiences’ engagement with and perception of news and media: how can data from the Digital News Report survey and other research help us understand how people around the world engage with news and media, what their attitudes are towards journalism and digital technology, and what political, social, and other factors influence their news and media use?

·    Business model innovation and digital news: how are media organisations developing new sources of revenue and new business models to sustain news production in a digital media environment?

·    Content and format innovation: how are journalists and news media evolving new ways of telling stories that go beyond the traditional forms of text, images, and video to embrace the potential of digital media?

·    Trust in the news: how can we better understand, quantitatively and qualitatively, trust in the news and ways in which journalists and news media can address declining trust and reconnect with alienated audiences who do not always see news as relevant?

The posts are available as soon as possible for up to 2 years. Start date and length will be agreed individually.

These positions are an exceptional chance to be part of one of the largest international studies of journalism and news in the world. Our previous post-doctoral researchers have gone on to very good jobs including tenure-track jobs in Germany, Ireland, the UK, the US and elsewhere.
