ICC Recruitment Opportunity – Research Fellow
Added on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013
The Institute of Cultural Capital (ICC) seeks a suitably qualified Research Fellow to lead the development and delivery of a programme of economic valuation research in association with project partners Mersey Care NHS Trust. The research will consider the longer-term resourcefulness and economic value of cross-sector cultural activity in the Merseyside region using a Holistic Management analysis framework, including the application of a ‘systems thinking’ approach to resource management, designed to explore whether decision-making becomes more economically, socially and environmentally effective when based on a shared ‘holistic goal’.
Proven experience and expertise in economic valuation research is essential, although not necessarily undertaken with arts and cultural organisations. Relevant postdoctoral experience within higher education would be an advantage. Candidates must be able to take a lead role in the design, planning, execution and analysis of the studies undertaken.
The post will be based at ICC offices, Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), with one day per week at Mersey Care NHS Trust. The post is available for a fixed-term two-year period on an initial basis, with contract renewal dependent on the generation of additional external funding by the post-holder (with the support of ICC/LJMU). The Research Fellow will also be expected to play an integral role in the future development of the ICC as part of a small core team, contributing to wider research project development and planning where appropriate.
Closing date: 19 November 2013
