About the Role
The Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) is a world-class interdisciplinary research centre with a wide-ranging portfolio of Masters programmes. In both research and education, we proactively engage with pressing contemporary concerns with new methodological thinking. We are experts in the scientific, interpretive, creative and participatory methods that allow us to address today’s most urgent challenges, from AI to digital infrastructures to climate change. We understand impact as being about making interventions, whether they be in policy, public understanding or bringing about change through action research.
We are excited to say that we are starting a new phase of growth. As we plan for the future, we will be making multiple new appointments in one or more of the following fields:
- AI and society, including ethics and governance
- digital media and/or digital methods
- environment, ecology and sustainability
- digital health and society.
Interest in design, speculative or aesthetic methodologies, and statistical and computational approaches to these fields is welcomed. Equally important is a concern with addressing the social inequalities of race, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability. We would welcome candidates who have experience working in the Global South, particularly East and Southeast Asia. About You
You will need to show that you have a promising or established track record of internationally recognized interdisciplinary research and experience in the design and delivery of interdisciplinary teaching. You should have an interest in or be able to demonstrate a track record in mobilizing funding and using research to deliver impact. You will be enthusiastic about teaching students from a wide variety of backgrounds in arts and humanities, sciences, social sciences and computer science and be able to contribute to teaching on one or more of our established Masters’ programmes.
You will have an interest in one or more of our research themes, as well as the interest, capability and motivation to develop your own research profile and apply for research funding from a wide variety of funding bodies. See, for example, some of our past and current projects. You will be able to play a significant role in the development of teaching programmes in the Centre as well as attracting and supervising PhD students.
At CIM, we are committed to continuously improving our efforts in building and sustaining an inclusive and equitable working and learning environment for students and all staff. We believe that every member of our team enriches our diversity by exposing us to a broad range of ways of understanding the world. We welcome candidates from underrepresented groups, including from the Global South.
