Digital Catapult and RCUK Digital Economy Researcher in Residence

Leave a comment

The Digital Catapult and the RCUK Digital Economy (DE) Theme is now accepting applications for the Researchers in Residence Programme at the Digital Catapult Centre in London.

Junior Residencies: these will enable leading early career researchers to develop their existing research interests within a user-centred project in conjunction with the Digital Catapult. Projects should be relevant to one or more of the current Digital Catapult Challenge Areas, or to likely future areas of interest[1]. Award holders will be based in the Catapult or a relevant user organisation full or near full-time. Projects should be focused on impact generation or commercialisation, whilst also feeding back user experience to the Digital Economy research community.

Senior Residencies: targeted at exceptional researchers with a significant track record in current Challenge Areas or in potential novel areas of interest1 for the Digital Catapult. Holders will be expected to help shape Catapult projects, provide thought leadership, and drive the creation of new activities, on either a full time basis or via a series of short secondments to the Catapult.

All residencies will benefit from a grant of up to £25K to cover expenses, including travel and accommodation.

The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Sunday 6 December 2015.
