Seeking socio- or cognitive linguist or rhetorician or person with DA experience informed by deep language insights who is from Spain and speaks Spanish.

Applicants need to demonstrate that they can surface deep insights about patients’ experiences with their illness, treatments, physicians and identity from online social media discussions using deep socio and/or cognitive linguistic or language-based knowledge.

The ability to identify metaphors is important. The ability to identify pattern is important. The ability to attend to unique and ripe grammatical constructions is important. It is important to be able to notice how a writing style is influenced by the way patients work with their disease – or how their disease is working on them. The ability to recognize identity issues in play and how they are playing out is key.
