Goldsmiths’ Strategic Priority Research Areas – University Research Leaders

We are seeking the appointment of Professors with outstanding records of internationally recognised research and publications, together with an established track record of significant income generation through research grants or business/industry funding. We are also seeking candidates with academic and non-academic networks and collaborations who can evidence how their research has had demonstrable societal impact.

These Professors will play a significant role in helping Goldsmiths to grow as a leading research institution. They will advance strategic research priorities for the University. They will lead programmes of research that will speak to, and help define, strategic research areas over future years and will address a clear societal need and challenge. We are also looking to appoint individuals who will support a flourishing research culture by encouraging and inspiring early career colleagues in their research endeavours.

These are permanent, full-time posts. For the first three years, the role will be focused on developing a programme of research and winning funding. Given the significance of these posts, the University will provide each successful candidate with three years of funding for a dedicated postdoctoral researcher and/or PhD studentship, together with non-salary research related budget of up to £20k per annum.

About the Strategic Priority Research Area – Inequalities in the Creative Industries

Political concerns relating to the creative and cultural industries in terms of gender, sexuality, class, race, disability and the intersectional relationships between each are currently on the public and political agenda from worker harassment and abuse to under-representation of minoritised peoples across all roles and industries. Further research across these areas is much needed.

We are seeking to appoint a leading creative and cultural industries researcher in the area of inequalities. The role-holder is expected to come with a proposed programme of research that will work closely with community, policy and industry organisations and focus on issues concerning work and labour to cover areas such as:

– Intersectional inequalities across and between cultural/creative industries and workforces and different types of worker contracts.

– Comparative international research within and/or across sectors of the creative economy, particularly in places where the policy framework for creative industries differs, and how we bring in the global majority in a non-extractive way.

– Digital innovations, as well as exclusions by big technology platforms and how software services and hardware design shape inequality in the cultural and creative industries

– The multiple ways in which discourses and practices of discrimination within work and labour contexts alter and reproduce amidst technological change in the cultural/creative industries.

– Inequalities of artistic attribution in digital creative production, especially in relation to generative AI and virtual production.

– Activism and the political organisations of creative and cultural industry workers.

– Informal creative economy markets and the potential of content creators which challenge Global North enterprise models.
