The CoronaNet project is an international effort of more than 500 researchers to collect data on a variety of government responses to the COVID-19 pandemic for use by policy makers, academic researchers and others.
The principal investigators for this project are:
- Cindy Cheng, Hochschule für Politik at the Technical University of Munich
- Luca Messerschmidt, Hochschule für Politik at the Technical University of Munich
Co-Principal investigators for this project are:
- Joan Barceló, New York University Abu Dhabi
- Vanja Grujic, Universidade de Brasília
- Allison Spencer Hartnett, University of Southern California
- Timothy A. Model, Havighurst Fellow at the Miami University
- Robert Kubinec, New York University Abu Dhabi
- Caress Schenk, Nazarbayev University
This project has already collected initial data on government responses for all countries in the world. Because of the nature of the global pandemic, we are immediately sharing all data collected in this project with the aim of informing the broader public and stimulating research on the effects and causes of COVID-19 policies. It is an excellent opportunity for those who want hands-on policy analysis.
Research assistants also have the option of writing policy reports for their countries or interesting policy trends, which are then published on our website. Your name and bio will also appear in our published articles and on our website.
For those who are junior faculty/postdocs/PhD students, we are happy to consider collaboration in terms of academic publishing/writing.
Please email us at about the position can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can learn more of your interest in the project/data.
In addition, we do have some needs for those who can volunteer to help with data engineering and visualization to make the dataset more easily available to others.
If you would like to contribute in those areas, please fill out the form and provide evidence of your experience in your CV.
