Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the project “Transfer for Transformation (T4T) “

Economics - UK Jobs

The German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA) / Leibniz-Institut für Globale und
Regionale Studien is an independent Social Science research institute based in Hamburg. It analyses political, social, and economic developments in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East to address questions of local and global significance. It combines region-specific analysis with innovative comparative research on accountability and participation, globalisation and development, peace and security, and global order and foreign policies. The GIGA seeks to appoint a
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Applications are invited for a full-time position, with a contract of 3 years, starting as soon as possible. The position is designed for further professional qualification as defined in § 2 WissZeitVG (Academic Fixed-Term Contract Act). The salary is commensurate with EG 13TV-AVH / TVöD. 
The successful candidate will work in the project Transfer for Transformation (T4T) under the lead of Prof. Amrita Narlikar. T4T is funded via a grant won in a competition of the Leibniz Association and is a generator of transfer innovation. Knowledge Exchange is a priority at the GIGA. We continuously engage with key target audiences – including the Federal Foreign Office – and have developed a range of outreach formats. Topics covered by T4T are complex global transformations that will shape future global order, including digitalisation in international relations. We work with a focus on the Global South and seek to bring perspectives from the regions to the forefront in academic and public debate. T4T is conceived of as an application lab. It will develop new transfer concepts and put them to practice. T4T will also advance the scholarship on the subject by analysing under what conditions, some forms of transfer are more impactful than others. 
The T4T Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be expected to contribute to intellectual debates on communication, narratives, and exchanges between academia and policy, with an eye to bridging the gap between research in political science and economics on the one hand and policy-making in these areas on the other. The Fellow will have an established expertise in the science – policy interface. An interest in the relationship between digitalisation and impact would be welcome. A key goal of the project is to better understand why certain types of knowledge transfer activities produce greater impact than others, particularly in the areas of foreign, development, and security policy. 
Tasks will include:
collaborate with the T4T PI and team to produce research articles and policy briefs. A specialism in the field of digitalisation in the Global South will be an asset.
develop and conduct surveys and case studies on the impact of knowledge transfer in foreign, development, and security policy
participate in exchange with the FFO, esp. on digital diplomacy (see also DigiTraL https://www.giga-hamburg.de/en/research-and-transfer/projects/digitral)
contribute to the further development of project-related transfer activities (e.g., setting up and maintenance of a T4T blog), and
carry out administrative activities (up to 25%), including for instance the documentation of transfer activities of theT4T project. 
Mandatory qualifications:
outstanding doctorate in Political Science / International Relations.
excellent academic record on related research topics
proven writing skills with range of target audiences
proven methodological proficiency (survey methods skills will be an advantage)
English language proficiency
strong administrative skills
Desired qualifications:
experience in knowledge transfer activities, including social media & blogs
policy orientation
German language proficiency and other research-relevant languages are a plus.

PhD Studentship. Bridging the E-gap: Enabling the Digital Curation Skills of Tees Valley Residents

Economics - UK Jobs

Digital curation is the selection, preservation, maintenance, collection and archiving of digital assets. Although traditionally the purview of archivists, the age of digital citizenship requires we all be e-enabled to proactively manage our personalised cloud-based informational assets. In the age of big data and algorithmic governance, being unable to securely manage one’s online identity brings a danger worse than any traditional cyber threat: we run the risk of remaining “uncounted”. A situation known to marginalise economic opportunity, negatively affect health and wellbeing, and lead to lower levels of civic involvement and political engagement. Equally, global threats to economic resilience, public health, and social order – such as Covid19 and greenhouse emissions – reinforce the need for all members of society to possess a broader range of digital skills than at present. Not least of all, given current e-gaps reflect long-standing social inequalities in relation to age, gender, location, employment, education, welfare, and access to social justice.In this PhD Project, the researcher will undertake a mapping exercise to identify need across the Tees Valley region and innovate across public and private sector to suggest possible pathways to close these e-gaps. Working with key stakeholders, including schools, housing, welfare, and business sector partners, they will utilise mixed -methods – building and testing models of digital citizenship with quantitative administrative data and survey data, narrative interviews and documentary approaches – and focus developmentally on four key scoping areas: education, employment, cybersecurity and health. The goal being to ensure Tees Valley residents have the digital curation skills needed across a range of key contemporary “uncounting” threats: including, telemedicine and access to health and wellbeing services; business, enterprise, and home working; and finally, distance learning and knowledge-economy skills training. In doing so, this work will enhance the technological skills and digital literacy of the local population and promote more resilient and connected e-communities across the region.
