Freelance job for student with frontend development experience (JavaScript, React, Redux) at Aarhus Universitet

About the job

Within the ERC-funded research project STANDBY, “Standing by: Pro-social Bystander Reactions to Online Political Research”, we are looking to conduct a range of experiments using a ‘Mock social media platform’. On such a platform, research participants will have a feeling of engaging with a social media platform like for example Facebook or Twitter, while we as researchers have control over what material participants are exposed to. We have decided to use the Mock Social Media Website Tool, which is an open-source web application (see https://docs.studysocial.media). However, for our specific research purposes we would like to add some features to the already developed application.

We are looking for

We are looking for a skilled student assistant with a background in computer science with experience in web development (see specific requirements below) to implement the required features. The job is estimated to be done within 150 hours of work. The job is flexible in terms of when exactly the candidate is working on the project and can be done remote. However, the project needs to be finished before December 20, 2021. Start date is as soon as possible.
