CLOSING DATE: 7th October 2019
We invite applications for academic Expert Fellows from any disciplinary background to join SPRITE+, a new UK EPSRC-funded Digital Economy NetworkPlus.
We are seeking between 50 and 70 new Fellows to join a diverse group of expert scholars, each bringing deep expertise and creative thinking to SPRITE+ activities, and together providing a broad, challenging and informed range of viewpoints on trust, identity, privacy, and security in digital contexts.
The scope of SPRITE+’s remit is broad and can be viewed through many disciplinary lenses. The Expert Fellows group will include many with a track record of research in trust, identity, privacy, and security in digital contexts. But new insights may also come from Expert Fellows who have not previously worked specifically in this area but who may have expertise in related or pertinent topics or in methods that have not previously been applied to digital security challenges.
We welcome applications from any disciplinary background, but particularly from currently under-represented disciplines: Aerospace, Communications and signal processing (EEE), Complexity and complex systems, Creative & Performing Arts, Data Science, Design engineering, Digital humanities, Economics, Education, History, Human geography, Intelligent systems and networks (EEE), International Studies, Law and legal studies, Literature, Management and business studies, Materials, Mathematics, Mechanical engineering, Optical and semiconductor devices (EEE), Philosophy and ethics, Political Science, Psychology, Quantum technologies, Robotics and autonomy, Social anthropology, Social policy, Social statistics, Sociology, Statistics.
Nominations from those involved in running cognate organisations and networks are welcomed.
