The candidate will participate in communicating the project results both to academic audience (conference papers, publications) and the general public (project website, media) and participate in preparation of application for further external funding. He/she may also be required to supervise student research assistants, contribute to lectures and teaching, prepare conferences, peer-review draft papers of other team members, edit and proof-read draft publications, and assist the PI in his research, teaching and outreach tasks.
