Deadline for application: 29 October 2017
The Human Rights, Big Data and Technology Project, housed at Essex Human Rights Centre, (HRBDT Project) is recruiting for two PhD studentships on ‘Human Rights and Social Justice in the Digital Age’.
The studentships will be associated with Work Stream One of the Project, which seeks to advance knowledge and understanding on how big data and associated technologies are reshaping the conceptualisation and meaning of human rights. The Work Stream seeks to provide insight into the nature of, and connections between, the positive and negative human rights implications of big data and associated technologies by mapping and analysing the wide range of threats posed and opportunities offered.
