Research Careers in Gaming and Media


Gaming and related social media platforms are in need of highly-trained research talent.  The sector requires a constant stream of creative artists, editors, social scientists, quantitative analysts, neuroscientists and engineers, to name just a few in-demand job types.

Outside of the fun and potentially time wasting aspect of video games and gaming environments there are, of course,  important gaming applications to such fields as education, medicine, museums and the arts, and national security.  Our search this week uncovered a wide array of  opportunities at large companies such as Meta, Tik Tok, Disney, Nielsen Research and selected (and well funded) start-ups and market research firms.  Many are looking for deep research skills.
