The Department of Digital Humanities wishes to appoint a Lecturer (Education and Research) Digital Economy and Innovation.
We are seeking a passionate researcher and educator with an excellent track record in the field of Digital Economy, and/or demonstrable potential to work towards such a record. Research engagement with one of more of the Department’s areas of interest in Digital Economy is required. These include, non-exhaustively, platform economics, the gig economy, open innovation approaches to business; open source and algorithmic work; and other areas which touch on the social and cultural dynamics of the Digital Economy. This is a major opportunity for a suitably qualified candidate to contribute to our emerging teaching and research profile in this critical area through their research and publications and through grant capture. The postholder will be required to contribute original and innovative teaching at postgraduate and undergraduate levels, and to undertake supervision of Masters and PhD students in the field. In particular, they will contribute to our MSc in Digital Economy, which is now in its third academic year of teaching, and to the development and delivery of our new parallel online version of this programme.
Candidates will contribute to the life and reputation of the Department, the Faculty, and the College through taking on an appropriate administrative role, contributing to internal networks and collaborations, taking part in external national and international activities, and undertaking industry and public engagement where appropriate.
King’s is committed to equality, diversity, and inclusion and through this appointment it is our aim to develop candidate pools that include applicants from all backgrounds and communities. We particularly encourage applications from women, people from global majority ethnicities, LGBTQ+ identities, and from people with disabilities.
This post is an open-ended position with a probation period, which is usually three years.
This post will be offered on a full-time, indefinite contract from 1 July 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.
