Treato, a growing social-media company that conducts research in the
healthcare space, is looking for linguists with masters’ or doctoral degrees
who are based in the United States to work on a contract, telecommute basis.
The contractor would assist with analysis of social media for projects serving
the pharmaceutical sector.
While hours needed will be determined on project-by-project basis, Treato is
seeking people who can be available to work from 30 to 40 hours per week.
Treato analyses address a broad range of client questions, such as:
- Patients’ framing and conceptualization of their disease and disease
- Identity work & Identity Concerns
- Emotional experiences of patients and caregivers
- Role of metaphors and narratives in patients’ and caregivers’ online
discussion of disease and treatments
- Patients’ perceptions of treatments and treatment options
- Patients’ construction of the physician’s role in their care
The linguist would assist in coding and analyzing patients’ and caregivers’
social media posts and discussions concerning their disease and treatment
experiences to generate meaningful and well-targeted analyses and insights.
S/he will make decisions about how to code the data based on client questions
and carry out coding, analysis, and report writing.
We are particularly interested in candidates with strong backgrounds in
sociolinguistics and/or discourse analysis who can identify attitude and
emotional information from specific linguistic evidence and who can report
these data effectively.
The linguist would be expected to apply linguistic knowledge and tools to the
analysis as well as to become quickly familiar with disease states and
treatment options. Findings would be reported in PowerPoint including through
charts / graphs, conceptual visualizations and bullet-point descriptions.
Applicants would be willing to undertake a test to gauge their facility in
working with the data in relation to key types of questions they would
encounter as a contractor.
The work is both interesting and fast-paced.
Application Deadline: 30-Sep-2015 (Open until filled)
