As a Research Assistant on the University of Wolverhampton’s International Research and Innovation Scheme (IRIS), ‘Identifying Successful STARTS Methodologies’ you will be working with a cross-Faculty research team on this multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary project.

 

The research project, led by Dr Denise Doyle, is collaborating with external partner Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria and the EU funded STARTS (Science, Technology, and the Arts) Prize https://starts-prize.aec.at/en/ to analyse the innovative and collaborative strategies used by the STARTS Prize Winners and Honorary Mentions. The post will support the implementation of the research case studies, the promotion of the project, and the associated dissemination activities.

 

Ideally you will have experience of inter-disciplinary research, subject specialist knowledge (arts, digital technology, media or social science), and have knowledge of arts and emerging technologies and related research methods to provide research assistance to the project. Good interpersonal and communication skills are essential, as is a commitment to research excellence, quality, equal opportunities, and the ability to work with independence and initiative.

 

The position is based at the Wolverhampton School of Art and is linked to the Digital Technology Theory and Practice (DTTP) Research Cluster that investigates the potentials and complexities of the move from analogue to digital technology.
