    The Emerging Technologies Research Lab (ETLab) is co-located across the Faculties of Art, Design and Architecture and Information Technology. ETLab is an interdisciplinary and international research and knowledge community. We investigate the futures, present and past of our social, experiential and political worlds.

    These Research Fellow positions are an exceptional and exciting opportunity for two outstanding, innovative, and flexible researchers with experience and qualifications in social and visual or design anthropology and a commitment to futures anthropology and theoretical, methodological and ethnographic innovation. The successful candidates will participate in generating groundbreaking theoretical and empirical research, engagement and impact. They will be the first appointments to Professor Sarah Pink's Laureate Fellowship group which will ultimately involve four Research Fellows, three PhD students and a professional staff member.

    The Research Fellows will undertake research related to digital and net zero transitions across one or more of the themes of home, work and urban futures. They will employ and innovate in approaches developed in visual, design and futures anthropology, including literature based, ethnographic, video and photography-based, design futures, workshop and speculative methods. In addition to delivering top quality academic research and scholarship. They will be involved in making methods focused and ethnographic video shorts and documentaries either independently or as part of a team, and will lead, contribute to and participate in diverse modes of dissemination including industry- and government-accessible reports, video and photographic, public scholarship, and academic peer refereed publications.

    The Research Fellows will be active participants in FUTURES Hub, a communication, meeting and dissemination point for Futures research and activity connected to Sarah Pink's ARC Laureate Fellowship, 'The Impact of Future Human Values and Practices on Australia's Digital and Net Zero Transitions'. FUTURES Hub also connects related futures focused work of ETLab and its FUTURES community of engaged scholars and partners from industry, government, not-for-profit and other sectors.
