Hi everyone,

The User Experience Research team at Facebook is hiring in a new job
call specifically
for my team working on "information integrity" issues. We're looking for
more mixed-methods social scientists from political science, communication,
psychology, sociology, anthropology, journalism, HCI, and other
disciplines. People with international research experience strongly
encouraged.

Industry researchers: if this is your domain expertise, please apply!
Professors, send us your students and postdocs (or even yourself)!

in the past year:
