The Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries (CMCI) seeks to appoint a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to assist with the successful conduct and completion of a major new EU funded 3-years project, entitled “Developing Inclusive & Sustainable Creative Economies”. The project, which involves a consortia of EU partners, aims to investigate the role of Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs) as contributors to 'growth', quality employment, economic competitiveness and social cohesion, and to address key questions of cultural opportunity, including issues of cultural connectivity and care.

The UK team are specifically interested in addressing the following: to 1) gain a better understanding of career perspectives, challenges and training needs of current and future creative workers; 2) explore inequality and exclusion in the CCIs; 3) provide a new framework through which to examine and support the role of the CCIs in processes of 'inclusive and sustainable growth', understood not only as contribution to GDP but also as cultural development and human flourishing. The Postdoctoral Researcher will lead on fieldwork and data collection in UK, as well as contribute to international workshops, reports, policy briefings, and stakeholder engagement. The ideal candidate will have sound knowledge and experience working with qualitative methods, but also a good understanding and working knowledge of quantitative data and frameworks. They will need excellent organisational skills to coordinate the fieldwork and project activities, as well as an interest in working collaboratively and internationally.

This full time post will be offered on a fixed-term contract until 31 December 2021.

The selection process will include a presentation and a panel interview.
