Associate Professorship of Digital Culture

OII - 1 St Giles - OXFORD - OX1 3JS

The Oxford Internet Institute (OII) is seeking to appoint an Associate Professor of Digital Culture, in association with a Research Fellowship at Green Templeton College. The post will sit within the OII. The successful candidate will conduct outstanding research and deliver graduate teaching on topics relating to digital life and culture.

The position is open to candidates from the social sciences with a research profile in areas such as Internet cultures (identity, norms, expression, aesthetics), digital arts and creativity, social movements and participation, cultural analytics or related areas. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct innovative research that uses qualitative methods to generate important insights for society, and to be willing to engage in cross- disciplinary collaborations that support this. We are keen to see applications from candidates in disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, media and communications, and political science but candidates from cognate disciplines conducting relevant research are also welcome to apply. We particularly welcome candidates conducting policy-relevant research and those with skills in digital ethnography, online interviewing, cross-cultural qualitative analysis and large-scale qualitative data analysis. As an outward- looking multi-disciplinary social science department, the successful candidate should enjoy engaging across disciplines and should also be comfortable engaging with non-academic audiences.

The successful candidate will contribute research-led teaching and supervision for OII graduate students and will also contribute to the delivery of core and option papers on OII MSc degrees.

Candidates must demonstrate a research record in digital culture with an international standing appropriate to the stage of their career; the ability to deliver excellent teaching, and a willingness to undertake administration and pastoral responsibilities on behalf of Green Templeton College and of the University. Candidates should hold a completed doctorate, or a completed doctoral dissertation submitted for examination by the advertised closing date for this position.

This post is available from 1st October 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter. This is a permanent appointment (subject to successful review during the initial period of office).

For the University, the post holder will teach, supervise graduate students, and participate in examining students within the OII, and play a full and active role in the intellectual life of the department. They will be expected to engage in independent and original research, to secure funding and engage in the management of research projects and disseminate research of the highest international standard through publications, conferences, and seminars. They will be entitled to office space at the OII.
