The Centre for Postdigital Cultures (CPC) is a new research centre at 
Coventry University:

http://www.coventry.ac.uk/research/areas-of-research/postdigital-cultures/

We are looking to recruit a Research Fellow/Developer with knowledge of 
new technologies such as Xtended Reality and those associated with open 
access publishing. Our Research Fellow/Developer will be equally happy 
with building platforms as they are with contributing to funding bids 
and academic papers. The person we employ will be involved in all 
technical aspects of the Research Centre from uploading website content 
to creating virtual reality scenarios and will have the people skills to 
work with those at all levels of technical understanding.

You will be qualified in object oriented programming languages such as 
c#, c++, Java, Java scripts and swift with proven experience of 
development in modern web development languages like PHP and HTML5. Plus 
you will possess some experience in 2D/3D modelling using software such 
as 3DS max and Photoshop and Maya for digital asset creation and Unity 
3D or Unreal game engines for developing game-based and immersive 
experiences.

This is the chance for you to join the CPC team in the early stages of 
growth and to play a significant role in the development of impactful 
research activity within the emerging field of postdigital cultures. Led 
by Professor Gary Hall, the Centre explores how innovations in 
postdigital cultures can enable 21st century society respond to the 
challenges it faces at a global, national and local level. Specifically, 
it looks at how we receive, consume and process information; how we 
learn, work, and travel; and how we engage and regenerate our 
communities and cities.

What Do We Mean By Postdigital Cultures?

"The digital" can no longer be understood as a separate domain of media 
and culture. If we actually examine the digital - rather than taking for 
granted we already know what it means - we see that today digital 
information processing is present in every aspect of our lives. This 
includes our global communication, entertainment, education, energy, 
banking, health, transport, manufacturing, food and water-supply 
systems. Attention therefore needs to turn from "the digital" to the 
various overlapping processes and infrastructures that shape and 
organise the digital, and that the digital helps to shape and organise 
in turn.

The CPC investigates such enmeshed digital models of culture, society 
and the creative economy for the 21st century "postdigital" world.

Research Areas covered by the centre include:

Post-Capitalist Economies
Posthumanities
Affirmative Disruption and Open Media
Immersive and Playful Cultures, Creative Archiving and International 
Heritage
Digital Arts and Humanities
The 21st Century University and Art School

Members of the CPC include Janneke Adema, Adrienne Evans, Valeria 
Graziano, Kaja Marczewska, Marcel Mars and Miriam de Rosa.

The role of the Research Fellow/Developer is to plan, develop and manage 
collaborative and individual research projects, using their specialist 
technical skills.

This will include implementing new technology platforms and applications 
integral to the research projects of the CPC (for example, those 
associated with open access publishing and immersive XR technology) 
which address issues at an international scale using research as a 
driving force for global change.  It is also to develop ideas for 
generating income and to seek funding opportunities for routes to 
disseminate research findings that inform teaching and build the 
reputation of the University whilst advancing knowledge in the field.
