IRC Project on Quantitative text analysis in Arabic is Hiring!

A PhD doctoral researcher is being recruited to work on a project funded by the Irish Research Council (IRC). The project applies methods from quantitative text analysis to examine Arabic interviews with participants in Muslim resistance movements. The main objective related to the advertised PhD position is to help develop tools to identify and analyse so-called cognitive maps (Axelrod 1976; Dornschneider and Henderson, 2023; Dornschneider 2019) from the available interview data. The cognitive mapping analysis has four main objectives: 1- to show typical behavioral decisions (e.g. to join a resistance a movement) described by the interviewees; 2- to identify common reasoning processes related to these decisions; 3- to trace the role of religious beliefs in these reasoning processes.
