Beginning on Monday, January 11 Global Voices will begin a three-month research mapping of transparency, accountability, and civic engagement technology projects in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Latin America, South East Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and China.
Global Voices is looking to hire eight regional researchers who are able to begin working on January 11.
Specifically they are seeking:
Latin America - 2 researchers, Sub-Saharan Africa - 2 researchers, South East Asia - 1 researcher, South Asia - 1 researcher, China - 1 researcher and Central & Eastern Europe - 1 researcher.
For 16 weeks (from January 11 - April 2) each regional researcher is responsible for producing a total of four case studies about technology projects that aim to promote transparency, accountability, and civic engagement in developing countries.
Each regional researcher is expected to produce four case studies over 12 weeks (one case study every three weeks) and facilitate a total of two online discussions - blog posts - over 4 weeks.
Each regional researcher will be paid $800 per month for a total of $2,400.
Global Voices also has some money to bring the most active researchers to the Global Voices summit in order to present their findings on a panel.
