Research fellowships Internet Studies in Australia 2009/2010
Research fellowships (Digital Ecosystems, Cultural Enterprise)
Curtin University is now calling for applications for 2009’s postdoctoral and senior research fellowships. These are highly competitive and prestigious awards with 4-year terms. 13 in total are available across the whole university. Because of Curtin’s current desire to concentrate research into a small number of key areas, preference (strong preference I am told) will be given to applications in designated areas.
Two designated specialisations apply particularly to Internet research and would enable a successful applicant to join the Department of Internet Studies. These specialisations are digital ecosystems and cultural enterprise. They are vague enough, I suspect, to enable many different research projects to be successfully proposed, but do require a degree of concentration of networked information technologies, and on the production/understanding of cultural forms and businesses.
All the information is at:
The closing date is 31 October.
IF you want to join the Internet Studies Department, then your key reference is the Head of School, Media, Culture and Creative Arts (within which net studies fits) A/Prof Steve Mickler. However, please cc me into any correspondence to him so I can keep abreast of potential applications. I would be delighted to provide advice as well, prior to any formal contact. (Note – I am not contactable between 5 and 24 September).
