The Department of Political Science at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) is hiring a research assistant with a specialization in social media analysis and political communication. The candidate will be working in the frame of a project that aims to analyze online communication of political actors and elites’ discourse in advanced democracies (especially in the Low Countries). The candidate will also be closely involved in establishing a Social Media Observatory in the run-up to the 2024 elections in Belgium.

This is a call for applications for a full-time position as a research assistant for one year, with a possibility to extend it to a four-year PhD grant. In that purpose, the candidate will be asked to develop a doctoral research project dealing with one or several of the above-mentioned research questions, and to apply for a PhD grant (FNRS – the Belgian National Fund for Research) during the year.
