Internet Censorship Researchers (Part-time)
Deadline: N/A (Until positions are filled)
Location/s: Remote, but must be able to do research on Hong Kong, Myanmar, Singapore, and/or Vietnam
Description: Netalitica is hiring researchers to investigate Internet censorship in select states in Latin America and Asia. In 2019, we conducted the first phase of a project called “Improving Test Lists of Censored Online Content”. It aims to update Citizen Lab test lists that network measurement tools (e.g. OONI Probe, Centinel) use to uncover Internet censorship in individual countries. If network probes have greatly evolved over the past decade, test lists for many countries have seen little updates. Our project aims to address this problem. Last year, our team updated the lists of 20 key censorship states. This March 2020, we are launching the second phase of the project and we are looking to hire researchers to update the test lists.
