I'm not sure how many of you are in my blog audience, but it is a neat research opportunity (something I would have done when I was a grad student).
Dr. Kim Bercovitz is looking for a graduate student with expertise in and passion for blogging and social media research.
She is conducting a study on how cancer patients access online information and social support. The student will conduct research by identifying the virtual landscape and the most popular sites/blogs/.podcast/on-line support groups and help conduct a discourse analysis of the various social media sites. There may be opportunities to build and help maintain a blog. Those that would like more information or to submit a resume may do so by contacting Dr. Kim Bercovitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That's all I know about it. Contact the email if you have other questions.
