Job description

Assistant Professor – £39,992 – £47,722 per annum.
Associate Professor – £49,149 – £56,950 per annum.

We are interested in applications from scholars working in any subject area, positioned anywhere on the disciplinary spectrum, ranging from arts and humanities, social sciences, computer science, information science, through to mathematics, and the natural and life sciences. You will have a promising or established track record of internationally recognised interdisciplinary research and the design and delivery of teaching. You will join a friendly and supportive team, made up of approximately 14 permanent academics and academic technologists, who are committed to working together to conduct high quality interdisciplinary research and research-led postgraduate teaching.

The mission of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) is to investigate how methods and methodical practices drive interdisciplinary research and how interdisciplinary research drives methodological innovation. You will contribute to this shared mission through your critical, innovative approach to methodology, which we understand broadly to include an interest in critical, speculative, historical, empirical and scientific methods and practices.

Members of CIM have expertise in a wide range of fields, including complexity science, digital media research, science and technology studies, data culture, critical design, software and media studies, spatial methods and geographic information, geography, mapping, modelling, feminist theory and methodology, visualization, computer science, information systems, computational culture, digital humanities, and environmental- and bio-sensing. Whatever your subject area or disciplinary background, you will have a detailed knowledge of the archives, data sets, materials, media, and tools/software that support your research, and will work creatively to generate bespoke methods suited to new research challenges so as to connect to and extend the Centre’s existing expertise.

As a research centre, our research-led teaching comprises three Masters courses – MSc in Urban Analytics and Visualisation (title tbc), MSc in Big Data and Digital Futures and MA in Digital Media and Culture as well as a PhD programme in Interdisciplinary Studies and partner programmes in Media and Communication and Urban Science. You will be able to contribute to and broaden the portfolio of modules that we offer as well as attracting and supervising PhD students.
