Descripción 
A company that conducts discourse analyses of social media healthcare discussions among patients and caregivers is looking for master?s and PhD level linguists and rhetoricians with academic knowledge in sociolinguistics and rhetorics to surface deep insights about patients? experiences with their illness, treatments, physicians and identity. Applicants should have knowledge of the theories, tools and practices developed and used in discourse analysis Do you naturally attend to cognitive metaphors to discern relationship of speaker to object? Do you find verb tenses ripe, providing insight into how a person relates to time and why that?s important to understand their relationship to time given their context? What does a specific in-use anaphora reveal about the complex relationship between a person and their disease, their symptoms or overall experience? What are your linguistic tools for identifying agency? Who has agency? What has agency? What are the markers of interagency relationships? Are you familiar with dialogism or concepts of a speaker imagining even non-present listeners or projecting more than one type of listener? How does this help you understand the complexity of a patient?s experience?

We are looking for consultants who are interested in joining a team that produces insightful reports for pharmaceutical partners in relatively short runs (~ 6 weeks) and over months for longer engagements with multiple report deliveries over time. The depth of insight requires expertise and our timelines require flexibility and efficiency. Teamwork is a critical part of our approach but having the ability to work independently is also an essential attribute.

While the depth of insights are founded on academic principles, the findings must be geared towards clients who can take these insights and our recommendations into the marketplace. That is, deep insights reported in plain language.
Analysis is comprised of both qualitative review but also ?coding? data in Excel to ensure that the findings are supported by quantified findings.

Working with corpus-based software, such as concordance software, is increasingly part of our approach and familiarity with such software is a plus but not essential.

As a consulting position, this project-by-project based engagement is an opportunity to build your own consulting ?gig? as you work with us and other non-competitive agencies or to build a resume with the potential for a recommendation for full-time positions at other companies based on your consulting work with us.

Because projects must be completed in relatively short time periods, consultant?s need to have at least 25 hours per week available for the duration of a project.

We are specifically in need of:
1) People who live in / are from Italy and Speak Italian (so that they understand the socio-cultural context of social media discussions that they will be analyzing)

2) People who live in / are from Spain and speak Spanish (again, so that they understand the socio-cultural context of social media discussions that they will be analyzing
