The Opportunity

The School of Design wishes to appoint a Research Associate to the EPSRC-funded DeCaDE Centre for the Decentralised Economy. The post is to support staff in the design of a qualitative research study and partner engagement surrounding the deployment of a novel technological prototype. The role will include study design, data collection and analysis, partner and stakeholder engagement, and authorship of papers and reports relating to the delivery of the project. 

The project aims to explore how emerging data driven technologies such as Distributed Ledger Technology and Artificial Intelligence, could transform our digital economy through decentralised platforms.  Crucially, DECaDE is multi-disciplinary research centre – not just creating technologies, but understanding business drivers, the legal and regulatory landscape, and the impact of these emerging platforms on society and the future of work.  DECaDE is a collaboration between the Universities of Surrey, Edinburgh and the Digital Catapult.

The post holder will work closely with lead investigators, creative technologists, project partners and participants to study the user experience and wider implications of a novel technology for ‘tokenized rights’, where distributed ledger technologies are employed to manage creative rights and attribution.

  • Experience of technology deployments and user research
  • Experience of diverse partner and stakeholder engagement
  • Knowledge of Distributed Ledger Technologies and related innovations
