> Hello,

> I’m happy to let you know that D&S is hiring for a cluster of roles to

> <https://datasociety.net/research/media-manipulation/>
>  research initiative, which examines how different groups use the 
> participatory culture of the internet to turn the strengths of a free society 
> into vulnerabilities, ultimately threatening expressive freedoms and civil 
> rights. We would love your help getting the word out & would deeply 
> appreciate pointers to individuals you think might be a good fit!
> These roles are scoped to support a three-year research plan built around two 
> major projects running concurrently: First, the Global Media Manipulation 
> Casebook, which will capture numerous case studies and tracks attacks against 
> socio-technical systems. This project will form the basis of a new method and 
> theory for the emerging field of disinformation studies. Second, the Civil 
> Society Intelligence Unit will conduct research to inform organizations and 
> corporations of ongoing media manipulation efforts.
>  In order to advance this work, it’s essential to expand the team, both in 
> terms of numbers of people and skill sets (click through for individual job

> well-positioned to both do groundbreaking research in this field, and ensure 
> that it has visibility and influence in key communities.
