Psychreg, (2016, September 28). Vacancy: Research Fellows at Westminster Institute for Advances Studies. Psychreg on Editor's Choice. https://www.psychreg.org/vacancy-research-fellow-westminster-institute-advances-studies/
The Westminster Institute for Advanced Studies (WIAS) is an academic space for independent critical thinking beyond borders. It is located at the University of Westminster in the heart of London. Professor Christian Fuchs is its Director. The WIAS’ research focus is critical digital and social media studies.
WIAS has an open call for international research fellows who during a 3 month stay in 2017 conduct
critical studies of digital and social media’s role in society.
The WIAS aims to contribute to bringing about a paradigm shift from big data analytics to critical digital and social media research methods and theories. Digital and social media research at WIAS uses and develops critical theories, is profoundly theoretical, and discusses the political relevance and implications of the studied topics.
The WIAS’ Critical Digital and Social Media Studies Fellowship Programme is aimed at current and future research leaders, who engage in independent critical thinking. It enables them to undertake independent and collaborative research on original topics in a stimulating academic environment in London.
Funded scholarships are only awarded as a result of open calls. Priority will be given to well-defined projects. The regular scholarship duration is three months (start between 9 January and 1 May 2017). Later start dates are not possible.
Application deadline: Friday, 28 October 28 2016
