ABOUT SAGE Ocean
Social research is changing as a result of the availability of new forms of data, including “big data”. SAGE wants to accelerate this change by working with the social science community to help them tackle the key challenges they face. To do this, we set up an innovation incubator, SAGE Ocean, to create a suite of new products and services to ensure that every social science researcher has the skills and tools they need to work effectively with big data and new technology.
Do you want to work in start-up mode whilst having the benefits of working within a large organisation? Do you care about how the data revolution can impact social research? Do you want to develop your marketing skills and join a team that is building new products and services to change the way social research is done?
