Initially fixed term until 31 August 2017

Closing date - 30 October 2016

The Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute (CoDE) specialises in multidisciplinary research – bridging art and culture with science and technology – both within academia and industry. Technological advances impact society and bring new approaches to art and creativity. In turn, cultural shifts and novel creative practices bring opportunities for new technologies and innovations. The Institute’s vision is aligned with these key aspects of the evolution of modern culture, in the context of a rapidly and continuously evolving digital economy. In achieving its goals, CoDE draws on both its own cross-disciplinary research, experience and practice and the enabling of communication and collaboration between creative and technical experts.

We’re seeking to recruit the Director of CoDE Research Institute, who will refresh its national and international recognition as a centre of excellence in research, knowledge transfer and scholarship, as well as successfully supporting this vision with an income generation strategy to ensure the Institute’s long-term financial viability. With a PhD or Professional Doctorate, you’ll have substantial experience of working in one or more creative or digital spheres as well as in the higher education (HE) sector, a successful track record of bid-writing and research income generation, and a track record of internationally recognised research publications in a relevant area. With experience of managing externally funded research projects through to completion, you’ll have the ability to think strategically, to lead others and have experience of project management. You’ll have a strongly entrepreneurial and demonstrable collaborative approach, effective leadership and management skills.
