Hello Readers! We have four fascinating positions this week, one with the DFR Lab and three UX positions at Indeed, Workaday, and Benefitfocus. Check them out!
The Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab) is a start-up incubated at the Atlantic Council. They’re different than most think tank teams and we like it that way. DRFLab is an action-oriented center producing timely primary research, training an ecosystem of others who share our passion, and convening those on the front lines of our industry to elevate new ideas and chart a path forward. The DFRLab is at the forefront of open-source research with a focus on governance, security, technology, media, and where each intersects. Their method and approach allow them to inform the public and policymakers on issues such as protracted conflicts, breaking crises, and election integrity, in a uniquely tangible and data-driven way.
This contract position will lead a research project on encrypted peer-to-peer (P2P) and centralized messaging platforms in the United States. The one-year project aims to produce the most comprehensive body of research on encrypted messaging platform activity in the US to date, with particular focus on identifying future research questions. The project will investigate the varying degrees of trust in, and usage, and transparency of encrypted messaging platforms, and the subsequent implications for the spread of mis- and disinformation. The objective is to understand—and measure—how encrypted messaging platforms are shaping the dynamics of the broader U.S. information environment.
