Research Officer - Digital Methods
The School of Social Science conducts research and offers courses in sociology, criminology, anthropology, and archaeology. It is a research-intensive school and is one of the largest of its type in Australia with over 45 academic staff, 9 professional staff, and around 900 equivalent full-time students.
Paul Henman, Associate Professor of Digital Sociology and Social Policy, in the School of Social Science, and Principal Research Fellow in the Centre for Policy Futures has led innovative research on the role of digital technologies in government for over two decades. He is currently leading an Australian Research Council (ARC) funded project Government Web Portals as New Government Actors which will be undertaking online user surveys that track participants' web navigation. These surveys of people in USA, Australia, the UK and Canada, will assess the effectiveness of whole-of-government web portals. In a second ARC-funded project, Making complex interfaces work for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, large-scale webcrawling of disability organisations' websites will be used to identify patterns in online inter-organisational relationships. These relationships will be investigated alongside offline relationships.
