  • Goldsmiths, University of London is a world-leading centre of educational excellence where ground-breaking research meets innovative teaching and thinking. We're looking for inspiring and talented people to help build on our global reputation while also growing personally in a true learning organisation.

    The Foresight Lab: Alongside the other labs, CoSTAR's Foresight Lab is delivering a robust programme to address gaps in understanding how creative businesses are adopting and deploying these advanced creative media technologies, and the impacts of these deployments. Led by Goldsmiths, in collaboration with the BFI, and Edinburgh and Loughborough Universities, the Foresight Lab leverages an unrivalled team and network, comprising world- leading players in the creative technology R&D space from both academic institutions and industry, across the UK. Our delivery partners include Olsberg SPI, ARUP, Data Thistle, i2 media research, Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre (PEC), Julie's Bicycle, and Station 12.

    Department of Psychology: The Foresight Lab is headquartered at Professor Freeman's lab in the Department of Psychology at Goldsmiths. The Department has an innovative outlook, with world leading experts in all areas of Psychology. This includes ‘traditional' areas such as neuroscience, clinical, educational, social, and forensic psychology as well as more innovative areas (media, consumer, digital, art, aesthetics, dance and music), that take full advantage of the learning ethos at Goldsmiths. REF 2021 recognised the significant quality and impact of the department's research in society. Overall, 82% of our research and 100% of our research impact was rated at 4 and 3 level (quality that is world-leading or internationally excellent). Our research output reflects our diverse specialisms. We pride ourselves on being current, critical, and creative in our research.

    Summary: Based in the Foresight Lab Director Professor Jonny Freeman's team at Goldsmiths, you will be responsible for delivering and maintaining a cutting-edge workplan which will evolve dependent on sector, technology, and network developments over the duration of the project (to March 2029). This role is focused on both research and the effective communication of the research results to the Foresight Lab's wide range of target audiences, including the other CoSTAR Labs, the wider academic community, the technology and media sector, the Creative Industries, funders and policy makers.
