Research Officer, Digital Makings of the City of Refuge

LSE Department of Media and Communications

Salary: £34,736 pa inclusive (pro rata if part-time)

This is a fixed term full-time position for 12 months commencing on 1 June 2018. Two part-time (0.5FTE) positions for 12 months will also be considered.

LSE's Department of Media and Communications, established in 2003, comprises internationally acclaimed faculty who conduct critical, empirical and engaged research into the central role of media and communications within contemporary society.

We are currently seeking a Research Officer to join us by working on the project Resilient communities, resilient cities? Digital makings of the city of refuge. The project is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation in collaboration with the Institute of Global Affairs (IGA), LSE. The project investigates the role of digital communication in supporting resilient urban communities, especially in response to change resulting from refugee and migrant arrivals. The Research Officer will undertake empirical research at two or more of the cities on study - Athens, Berlin, London - along with the Principle Investigator (Dr Myria Georgiou) and the Co-Principle Investigator (Dr Suzanne Hall) and participate in the organisation, conduct and analysis of fieldwork and participatory events in two or more of the cities on study. The primary empirical focus is on three cities that currently experience the aftermath of the "refugee crisis" in Europe: Athens, Berlin and London. More information at http://bit.ly/2AiVNBT. The project's main aims are to:

- Examine how receiving and arriving populations use digital communication to connect/disconnect from others;
- Investigate local, national and transnational communication connections that support urban communities at times of demographic change;
- Use a multimethod approach to engage with a range of actors and record their diverse communicative experiences in multicultural urban locals.

You will have a completed PhD, or be working towards completion of a PhD, in a Social Sciences discipline, by the post start date, or have other research experience that demonstrates the capability to produce independent original research. You must have experience in conducting qualitative research and experience employing qualitative research with media users and/or migrants would be an advantage.  Working in a transdisciplinary research project employing quantitative methods, especially surveys, is desirable. You must have the ability to analyse and research complex ideas, concepts or theories, and to apply appropriate research methodologies.

You will also have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to manage your own workload and work to tight timescales. You must be able to demonstrate research interests in migration and/or the city, urban studies and/or digital cultures.  Previous experience working with migration and media users in Europe would be an advantage. A good level of spoken Arabic is essential and a good level of spoken German and/or Greek would be desirable.

The other criteria that will be used when shortlisting for this post can be found on the person specification, which is attached to this vacancy on the LSE's online recruitment system.

To apply for this post, please go to www.lse.ac.uk/LSEJobs. If you have any technical queries with applying on the online system, please use the "contact us" links at the bottom of the LSE Jobs page. Should you have any queries about the role, or for an informal discussion about the post, please email Dr Myria Georgiou ([log in to unmask]).

Please note: if applying for this role on a part-time basis, unfortunately it will not meet the salary level required by the UKVI in order for the School to be eligible to apply for a Certificate of Sponsorship for non-EEA candidates under Tier 2 of the UKVI Points Based System.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 14 January 2018 (23.59 UK time). Regrettably, we are unable to accept any late applications.

 Interviews are scheduled for the week commencing 5 February 2018.

LSE is committed to building a diverse, equitable and truly inclusive university.
