Post-doctoral Research Associate at the Centre of Governance and Human Rights

The Centre of Governance and Human Rights (CGHR, Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge) is seeking to appoint a post-doctoral Research Associate to work for up to 22 months on our new research project ‘New communication technologies and citizen-led governance in Africa’, funded by the Cairns Family Trust and the Newton Trust.

The role holder will develop, test and employ a theoretically grounded analytical framework for evaluating whether and if so how information and communications technologies (ICTs) shape processes of social and political change in developing country contexts, drawing upon empirical fieldwork in Africa. The role holder will work closely with the Principal Investigator on writing up findings and preparing publications. She or he will provide support to the management of the project, and will collaborate closely with project partners (see further particulars). The Research Associate will play an active role in building CGHR within the University and the wider research community.

Deadline: 14. Januar 2011
