OFFER DESCRIPTION

The expansion of the Internet and the development of a range of new active and passive measurement tools, particularly on mobile devices, present exciting measurement opportunities for researchers. In particular, the WEB DATA OPP project (funded by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, grant agreement No. 849165) leaded by Dr. Melanie Revilla investigates how visual data, voice data, metered data and in-the-moment surveys could be used to supplement conventional web survey data in order to reduce respondent burden, improve data quality, and extend measurement into new domains.

The WEB DATA OPP team seeks candidates interested in doing substantive research using some of these new measurement opportunities (visual, voice, metered data and in-the-moment surveys). Topics related with social sciences will be particularly appreciated, especially topics related to pro-environment behaviors (e.g., recycling, reducing waste production, etc.) and public policies to deal with climate change challenges. However, other topics will be also considered as long as they can be researched using at least one of the four new measurement opportunities. Candidates with a multi-disciplinary profile are particularly welcome.

The main tasks of the potentially successful candidate would be to work on substantive publications and conference presentations using the data produced within the scope of the WEB DATA OPP project, and under the supervision of Dr. Melanie Revilla.

The team is based at the Research and Expertise Centre for Survey Methodology (RECSM) at the "Ciutadella Campus" of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, very close to the Olympic Port in Barcelona. Being fluent in English is a requirement. A sufficient level of Spanish is a plus.
