There is an exciting opportunity for postdoctoral interdisciplinary work on the platform economy. If you are a legal scholar interested in working empirically, an economist, sociologist or management researcher who intends to develop work on regulation, or a communications scholar who is advancing innovative quantitative and qualitative digital methods, we would like to hear from you.

Two complementary posts are available, which are expected to make a leading contribution to the AHRC-funded Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre (PEC). The PEC is a UK-wide consortium, led by Nesta, with a prominent policy profile in the context of the UK government’s industrial policy agenda. This provides an ideal springboard for an impactful academic career. Appointees to the project will work with Professors Martin Kretschmer, Gillian Doyle and Philip Schlesinger, who are building a multi-disciplinary team to which we are making two appointments with complementary skills. The proposed research programme led by the University of Glasgow is explained here:

This is a cross-College project. The two appointees will become members of CREATe, the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre in the School of Law and the Centre for Cultural Policy Research in the School of Culture and Creative Arts. Specifically, the jobs require expert knowledge in any one or more of the following areas: intellectual property and information law, economics, management, media sociology, audiovisual industries and policies, cultural and media policies.

The successful candidates will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this project as opportunities allow. Depending on the anchor disciplines of the successful applicants, mentoring arrangements and career development opportunities with departments across the University will be explored.

These posts are postdoctoral opportunities, and funded for 2 years in the first instance.
