We develop our research on social changes from two perspectives that articulate the research lines. The first one is the analysis of new forms of civil participation and political expression  brought by network movements and emerging techno-political practices. The second one is the analysis of the role that mobile communication plays among non-central societal groups, mainly older people and low-income populations. By developing scientific knowledge in these vibrant areas, our research group will contribute to better understand crucial social changes of our contemporary societies.

The candidate will contribute to the analysis of data obtained from digital devices (smartphones, smartwatches, etc.) on one side and online surveys on the other.

A temporary employment contract will be drawn up, on a part-time basis (20 h/w), with a scheduled starting date of 1st of April.
