for the Quality of our research
In the first phase of our ambitious recruitment campaign we are seeking to appoint ten new academics who share this commitment. We would particularly like to encourage female applicants at all levels, including the professorial level where we actively seek to increase numbers. Applications from those who might want to work part-time are also welcome.
There are opportunities to join us in all of our disciplines and contribute to any of our five world-class research Beacons: Sport and Exercise, Communication and Culture, High Value Manufacturing, Built Environment, and Transport Technologies.
Investing in our staff
Our staff and students are the heart of the University and are the key to its ongoing success.
As Professor of Information and Knowledge Management, Professor Tom Jackson is just one of our leading lights. Tom is the Director of the Centre for Information Management. His research areas are Electronic Communication and Information Retrieval, and Applied and Theory based Knowledge Management.
Dr Emily Keightley, who is a Reader in Media and Memory Studies, explains how being part of the Communication and Culture ‘Beacon’ has opened up opportunities for new cross-disciplinary research collaborations. Emily has been awarded a Leverhulme Trust Research Leadership Award to run a five year project on cultural memories of Partition of India.
