30th June, 2023. The Microsoft Newman Fellowship in Digital Policy – Applications now open.

Deadline to apply: July 14th.

This Newman Fellowship is established with the generous support of Microsoft Ireland. The Newman Fellow will be based in the School of Information and Communication Studies.

This project is seeking a postdoctoral fellow with experience and expertise in digital policy and/or related areas. Recent years have seen several digital policy initiatives and new institutions, both national and European: from the DSA and the AI act to the OSMR. But to what extent are these new instruments delivering the kind of policy needed for today’s fast paced technological developments? What evaluative tools must we develop to monitor digital policy enforcement and audit its impact? Are all communities served equally? How can we gauge the extent to which digital policy is future proof?  What are the next generation technological developments and what might be their implications for digital policy?

Applications are invited from candidates who hold a doctoral degree in Information Studies, Law, Political Science, or other relevant disciplines and have experience in associated research methodology and policy analysis. Candidates must possess a PhD (or near completion).
