We are building a multi-disciplinary team to which we are making two appointments with complementary skills. The appointees will become members of CREATe, the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre in the School of Law. One of the appointments will work closely with the Centre for Cultural Policy Research (CCPR) in the School of Culture and Creative Arts. Specifically, the positions require expert knowledge in one or more of the following areas:

–intellectual property and/or information law;
–management of innovation;
–audiovisual industries and policies;
–platform regulation;
–socio-legal studies.

Candidates with an interest in innovative empirical methods, and data visualisation are particularly encouraged to apply.

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 that provide an ideal springboard for an impactful academic career. One of the appointments will be made for a period of two years, one for a period of one year in the first instance.

It is the University of Glasgow’s mission to foster an inclusive climate, which ensures equality in our working, learning, research and teaching environment.
