part of an externally funded project "Covid-19 and the Dynamics of Group

Blame: Lessons Learnt and Future Implications." This is an exciting

opportunity for a current postgraduate researcher or similar to develop

their skills, experience, and profile across all aspects of a research


You will work with the support of the principal investigator to examine

how blame for Covid-19 has been attributed in media and public

discourses. There are different strands to the project but you will be

involved in supporting research activities including preparing

literature reviews, media discourse analysis, and social media analysis.

You, therefore, should have experience of discourse analysis and/or

extracting and analyzing data from social media.

The hours stated above are to support the first phase of data collection

and analysis, between August 2022 and January 2023, but there is an
