Researcher wanted!

I am one of the researchers in the Centre for Creativity, Regulation, Enterprise and Technology (CREATe), funded by the AHRC, ESRC and EPSRC for the next four years.  It’s led by the University of Glasgow and both my former institution (UEA) and current (Edinburgh) are participating institutions.

As such, I’m very pleased to say that, for a project being run by myself and my former UEA colleague Dr. Emily Laidlaw, we are now looking for someone to work with us, a day a week for two years (to be appointed by UEA):

We are seeking a part time Senior Research Associate to contribute to a two phase CREATe project on human rights and the public interest in the context of copyright and the digital economy, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh.

You will have a Masters degree in Law or a related field and have expertise in human rights, copyright and/or information technology law and be able to fulfil the essential criteria in the person specification. This is a part time post for 1 day per week (20%) on a fixed term basis for two years.

And what’s it about?

We are seeking a Senior Research Associate to contribute to a CREATe project on human rights and the public interest in the context of copyright and the digital economy. This is a two phase project. The first phase consists of a comparative literature review to analyse the relationship between freedom of expression and copyright. The second phase seeks to identify trends in human rights engagement (past, present and future) and to identify the impact differing business models have on human rights. The goal from this investigation is to identify the key human rights issues raised by current and emerging business frameworks in the creative industry and provide guidance on how freedom of expression can facilitate new business models.

Closing date 12th October.  All the details are here.
